Crime Stoppers has become the Queensland public’s most effective tool in the fight to solve crime. Our Queensland program has some of the best results per capita in the world. Up to date statistics and in depth results are available through our State Office. Queensland’s continued success is in no small way due to:
the commitment of all of our volunteer members associated with the program,
the dedication and hard work of the men and women of the Queensland Police Service, and
the Queensland public trusting us to anonymously and confidentially manage their crime intelligence information.
In 2016, through its trusted position with the community and media, Crime Stoppers Queensland handled 61,584 calls, which led to 22,197 intelligence reports and over 3,100 arrests through its Contact Centre.
This is complemented by the direct engagement of thousands of community members across the state, strong media relationships and effective prevention campaigns that contribute to the safety of all Queenslanders.
