Valuable tip-offs result in arrests
CRIME Stoppers Queensland has launched into 2011 celebrating another pleasing year of results during 2010, following anonymous information reports provided by the Queensland public.
“During 2010, Crime Stoppers Queensland received 51,931 anonymous phone calls and website reports, up from 41,798 in 2009,” chief executive Trevor O’Hara said. “Those anonymous pieces of information last year alone resulted in 1206 offenders arrested.”
Another great result was the seizure of illegal drugs totalling $7.6 million.
Crime Stoppers Queensland has released these figures to coincide with National Crime Stoppers Day being celebrated today, an opportunity to remind all Queenslanders of the Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 number and that all information providers can remain anonymous.
