COFFS Coast residents who have information for Crime Stoppers will no longer need to wait until they're home to report any information they may hold.

Crime Stoppers in Australia today launched a mobile version of its tip submit website - www.crimestoppers.com.au

NSW Police have welcomed the creation of a mobile version of the popular Crime Stoppers website.

Operational Communication Assistant Commissioner Peter Barrie said information from the public was one of the greatest weapons police had to fight crime.

"The smart phone and the tablet have become a part of our lives in a short time," Asst Comm Barrie said.

"The mobile site will give the public an additional means to report crime that will work alongside the more traditional communications mediums.

"The mobile site is a secure, simple way for the public to tell us what they know.

"It is a great way for people to send us a message and support it with a picture - anywhere, anytime."

According to Peter Price OAM, CEO of Crime Stoppers, creating a mobile version is simply moving with the times.

"We have seen explosive growth in tips submitted by the public online -100% in the last 12 months alone. And not only in Australia," Mr Price said.

"This, coupled with the growth in smart phones and tablet mobile computers has led us to pioneer a platform that is a mobile version of our current encrypted web site, so the public can use simple drop down menus, a simple point and finger click'."
