No – you may have heard something or have a suspicion only. Don’t second guess yourself, contact Crime Stoppers and let us evaluate it – because if the information is of concern to you then it’s important to us.

When you contact Crime Stoppers you don’t have to provide concrete evidence of a crime involving a firearm. You may have overheard something, or something just doesn’t feel quite right – so reach out and share what you know.

Yes. The national firearms amnesty is permanent.

Firearms enable organised crime groups to be more lethal in their activities.

It only takes one firearm in the hands of a person with malicious intent to be of great concern to yourself, your family, or the community. Illicit firearms put us all at risk.

Crime Stoppers needs your help for ongoing, and sustained effort to reduce the number of, and access to, illicit and unregistered firearms in the community. Say something before it is too late.
