Crime Stoppers in Australia
Operating throughout Australia, Crime Stoppers has become an integral part of policing, with information gathered and supplied by the community essential to crime fighting and crime prevention.
Crime Stoppers Australia Ltd was formed, and strives to support local programs, develop national marketing initiatives for the betterment of Crime Stoppers awareness nationally, and assist new programs to develop within the region as defined by Crime Stoppers International.
Crime Stoppers now operates in all States and Territories of Australia. Each State or Territory has its own Crime Stoppers Unit in Police premises managed by a Police Coordinator.
Over 1000 programs operate around the world in over 18 countries. Because of the programs’ increasing success, Crime Stoppers Australia is now assisting regional countries as far away as India to establish their own Crime Stoppers programs.
