Westral is proud to announce that it has formed a Crime Prevention Partnership with Crime Stoppers Western Australia. Crime Stoppers in Australia is the most trusted information gathering service for people wanting to share what they know about unsolved crimes and/or suspicious activities. Members of the public can provide in complete confidence information about unsolved crimes, people wanted by the police, crimes being organised or suspicious activities. An independently prepared Community Impact Report shows 82 per cent of all Australians feel safer knowing Crime Stoppers exists. The research also found that 81 per cent of Australians believe the option to not say who they are when contacting Crime Stoppers gave the public the confidence to submit reports.
In 2019, Crime Stoppers programs across Australia received over 300,000 contacts via the 1800 333 000 phone number or its website, resulting in over 155,000 information reports being provided to police. The information directly led to 5,215 apprehensions and 18,686 charges being laid.
Crime Stoppers helps solve a crime every 14 minutes somewhere in the world, and in Australia Crime Stoppers is contacted every 100 seconds and assists in making 22 arrests on average every day.
If you would like to make a report, contact Crime Stoppers WA on 1800 333 000 or via its website, https://www.crimestopperswa.com.au/
