Congratulations from the SA Police Commissioner for our 25-year milestone

Posted on 22/11/2021

Did you know that this year marks 25 years of Crime Stoppers in South Australia?

Over that time, your information has helped catch more than 22,400 criminals and solve 35,000 crimes, including some of the state’s largest and most heinous cases.

We believe everyone has the right to feel safe from crime, which is why we also develop and deliver a range of crime prevention initiatives and share practical advice on how you can protect your community, and the people and things that are important to you.

Underpinning our success is how you don’t have to leave your personal details with us, calls are not recorded and IP addresses aren’t stored when using our website to submit a tip. An individual is in control of the contact process and chooses what information they share and whether they want to remain anonymous.
