Register to attend Crime Stoppers Conference 12 - 15 October

Cape Town will host the 35th Crime Stoppers International conference from 12 to 15 October.

Aimed to provide global best practice on addressing a wide variety of crimes, the sessions will be of particular value to organisations that have a focus in the following areas.

  • Human Trafficking: Victims have been found in at least 137 countries.
  • Drug Trafficking: It still tops the list as one of the most profitable forms of organised crime in the world with an estimated US$435-billion [2013: UNODC] profit annually.
  • Crimes Against Women and Children: How we communicate, aid and support survivors of rape, gender-based violence and forced prostitution.
  • Financial Crime: Money laundering, terrorist financing, weapons of mass destruction proliferation and fraud form the core of financial crimes globally.
  • Intellectual Property Theft (IP Crime) & Cyber Crime: The “silent destroyer of economic growth and job creation” from pirated music & films to counterfeit medication and other goods.
  • Illegal Wildlife Trade: Africa and Southeast Asia are particularly under threat as rhinos and tigers continue to be poached.
  • Theft of Natural Resources: theft, including electricity, oil, timber and minerals.
  • Crime Connected: Social Media and Technology in the fight against crime.
  • Crime Stoppers Inc: How to run your Crime Stoppers program as a business.
  • Police & Public: How can law enforcement effectively partner with Crime Stoppers and Communities.

Crime costs economies millions. This is especially detrimental to developing countries that more often than not depend on industries, such as tourism, for their livelihood.
