Noticed any suspicious behaviour lately?
If so, Crimestoppers want to hear from you. What you know, no matter how small it seems, might crack a case!

 

What is suspicious behaviour?

Incidents, events, people or circumstances that seem unusual or out of place. Here are some examples:

• Someone carrying property e.g. electronic equipment, office equipment, a locked bike, at an unusual time or location
• Someone going door to door without appropriate identification
• A vehicle cruising the street repeatedly
• Someone forcing their way into a locked vehicle
• Different people buying something from a vehicle
• Lots of traffic going to and from a house every day
• One or more people sitting in a car checking out the street
• Someone being forced into a vehicle
• Someone showing unusual mental or physical symptoms. They might have been in an accident or need other medical or physical help
• Unusual noises like alarms, gunshots, yelling, fighting sounds, dogs barking non-stop

 

What do I do?

• Stay calm and breathe
• Think about the date, time and where the incident is happening
• Call crime stoppers on 1800 333 000
• Answer the questions that you are asked (you can be anonymous, you don’t have to give them your name)
• Tell them what is happening
• Stay on the phone
• If it’s safe, keep watching and report what is happening
• Take photos with your phone only if it is safe
• Do not approach the person directly
