Cooltone has partnered with Crime Stoppers QLD as a crime prevention supporter.
Crime Stoppers is a community crime solving and prevention service that involves a partnership between the registered charity Crime Stoppers Queensland Limited (Crime Stoppers), the Queensland Police Service, the media and the public.
Queensland is one of the most decentralised states in Australia with a widely dispersed population. The Crime Stoppers program provides an avenue for the community as a whole to assist police to solve crimes and ultimately make our State a safer place.
Crime Stoppers Queensland Limited is a registered charity and community volunteer organisation, led by a volunteer Board of Directors who take great pride in the achievements of the program whilst leading, managing and coordinating strategic planning and performance.
The Vision of Crime Stoppers Queensland Limited is a safe empowered and engaged community.
Queensland is unique to most other Australian States and Territories in that the program is supported by local Volunteer Area Committees. Queensland’s’ continued success is due to the commitment of all of our Volunteer members.
Crime Stoppers purpose is to engage the community, to encourage the provision of information that supports the Queensland Police Service and other community agencies, in solving and preventing crime. The information collected is passed to the police.
In 2015, Crime Stoppers Queensland established a self-managed contact centre, thereby building further independence in the process of gathering anonymous intelligence information about suspicious or criminal activity from the community.
This step has allowed Crime Stoppers to form new meaningful relationships with external organisations that may assist the organisation to continue its valuable community service into the future.
The partnership with Cooltone and other local businesses across Queensland is a perfect example of how Crime Stoppers QLD capacity to partner with private enterprise to increase community safety and help reduce crimes committed in our local communities.
