The statis­tics were re­leased by Crime Stop­pers Queens­land to co­in­cide with Na­tional Crime Stop­pers Day. Crime Stop­pers Queens­land chief ex­ec­u­tive Trevor O’Hara said ar­rests were up al­most 10% from those achieved in 2013. “2014 has now re­placed 2013 as the sin­gle best year of ar­rests re­sult­ing from Crime Stop­pers re­ports since our pro­gram com­menced op­er­a­tion in 1989,” he said. “Th­ese re­ports led to 2439 ar­rests and 6212 crim­i­nal charges placed.”
