Crimestoppers is a national charity in the United Kingdom which works in partnership with the police and the media to help to solve crime.


Crimestoppers have an anonymous phone number, 0800 555 111, that people can call to pass on information about crime; alternatively people can send Crimestoppers information anonymously via their website, using the Giving Information Form. Callers don't have to give their name or any personal information and calls cannot be traced.

You can call the phone number, 0800 555 111, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week. Crimestoppers operates across the UK.

Every call is treated with absolute anonymity so that nobody will know the identity of the caller, except you, the caller. Rewards are also available and are paid without compromising a caller's anonymity.

Cleveland Crimestoppers

In November 2009, Crimestoppers launched a new regional committee covering the Cleveland area. The committee, called Cleveland Crimestoppers, is the 40th around the UK and the first county committee in the north east.

Cleveland used to be covered by North East Crimestoppers, which is splitting up into a number of smaller and more localised committees.

Cleveland Crimestoppers will work closely with police and media to promote Crimestoppers' 0800 555 111 phone number through which people can pass information about crime anonymously. Calls are not traced or recorded and no personal details of the caller are taken. This means people who pass on information will never have to give a statement or go to court. People can also pass on information anonymously by filling out the online Information Giving Form.

Dave Hunter, North East Regional Manager, said “Historically the north east had a committee, which worked very well, but as people get more time poor, it became increasingly difficult to maintain a regional structure. The new Cleveland Committee represents local people delivering local impact in their own communities.

"Can you imagine the power of engaging the entire community in the fight against crime. Members of the community can ring us on 0800 555 111, with no fear of their identity being revealed, and give vital information to help defeat those who would blight our lives”.
