Reporting a Crime

Call 111 in an emergency


Call 111 and ask for Police when:

  • Someone is badly injured or in danger.
  • There’s a serious risk to life or property.
  • A crime is being committed and the offenders are still there or have just left.
  • You’ve come across a major public inconvenience, like trees blocking a state highway.
  • Any of these things are happening now or have just happened.

If you can’t decide whether it’s a real emergency and you’re still worried, call 111 and ask us. We’ll help you work out what to do.

Crimestoppers is an independent charity helping policeand other law enforcement agencies to find criminals and help solve crimes.

Many people are afraid to come forward and report details of a crime about which they have information because of the potential repercussions of doing so. As a result, a large number of crimes that could easily be solved remain unsolved.  By providing a safe, secure and anonymous way for people to report crime, Crimestoppers will help reduce unsolved crime throughout New Zealand.
