The City of Stirling aims to provide a strong sense of safety in our community by working with the Police, residents, community organisations and other key partners. Our joint approach to community safety and crime prevention guides the City’s safety initiatives and helps create a safer City.

|Crime Stoppers 1800 333 000 (report crimes anonymously)|
Crime Stoppers is a community program that helps people to provide anonymous information about criminal activity and suspicious behaviour.
What information should you provide?
- How you came across the information and how you know it to be true
- Any information about past or current criminal activity
- Any information about suspicious or unusual activities
- The personal details of those involved – such as their names, home address, work address and vehicle registrations, if you know them
- Details of the criminal activity or suspicious behaviour – date, time, place and so on
- Details of the property – for example, how many people live there, if they have guard dogs or there are firearms and other weapons present
- Details of any vehicles involved.
- Callers aren’t expected to put themselves at risk to obtain these details, but all of the information provided helps the WA Police Force conduct their investigations.
What happens to the information?
Information reports are written from the details provided by members of the public. The reports are added to the WA Police Force intelligence database and where possible are checked against other available information to ensure any incorrect or possibly spiteful details aren’t included. Information reports contain keywords that can be brought to the attention of police officers who are investigating past crimes or new ones. All of the information provided by the public is analysed and becomes part of the WA Police Force’s intelligence holdings. You may also be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 from Crime Stoppers WA if your information leads to an arrest.
Cam Map WA
Cam Map WA is the current version of the WA Police Force State CCTV Register where business, government and private owners of CCTV cameras that capture public areas (streets, shopping malls, hospitals, foyers etc.) can register their cameras. Through a centralised database of CCTV locations, police investigators are able to identify potential CCTV opportunities or to prioritise houses to door knock during investigations, both around the incident location or on potential ingress/egress routes. Cam Map WA only holds owner contact details and camera locations, and it does NOT link to anyone’s CCTV system or footage directly. If footage is required, investigating officers will use the contact details provided to directly request available footage.
