Crime solving partnership celebrates 5-year milestone

Posted on 15/07/2022

A partnership launched in 2017 between Crime Stoppers South Australia and Police Credit Union is celebrating its half decade milestone this month, with more than 3,000 people apprehended by police and more than 9,000 crimes solved during that time thanks to the community.

Crime Stoppers South Australia CEO, Nigel Smart, said ongoing support from Police Credit Union assists the not-for-profit organisation to engage people and encourage them to anonymously share information about unsolved crime and suspicious activities.

“Welcoming Police Credit Union as a funding partner in 2017 provided financial stability at a time when we did not have any other major sponsorship support in place and since then we have been able to go from strength to strength,” Mr Smart said.

“The Police Credit Union team continues to work with us for a safer South Australia, with the partnership helping to offset essential operational costs associated with maintaining our freecall hotline, website, rewards program and delivery of community engagement campaigns,” he said.

“As a charity we work hard to make every dollar count, and we have been recognised at state, national and international levels for our ability to creatively develop and deliver value for money crime-solving and awareness programs.”

Police Credit Union CEO, Mr Costa Anastasiou, said supporting the Crime Stoppers SA program is another example of the customer-owned organisation actively supporting better communities.

“We are immensely proud to re-invest our profits back into enhancing our services to give back to the South Australian community through a number of very worthwhile activities, such as our partnership with Crime Stoppers. People sharing information with police via Crime Stoppers delivers real and significant benefits to every South Australian. The results speak for themselves.” Mr Anastasiou said.

“We are excited to reach this half-decade milestone and look forward to supporting community safety through this longstanding partnership,” he said.
