About Crimecall

About Crimecall

Crimecall Presenters

An Garda Síochána would like to thank the public for their support and assistance during 2014 and hope for continued support in 2015.

Crimecall is a monthly hour-long television programme which now airs on RTE One on Mondays at 9.35pm. It was first aired in September 2004 and Crimecall has now completed its tenth series and attracts an estimated audience of 405,540 per month.

The studio receives about 100 calls from members of the public during and after the programme. In some cases these calls identify a suspect in the investigation. In almost all cases they provide new avenues of investigation. The calls are passed on to the investigators in each case.

The programme provides an in-depth analysis of crime, including televised re-enactments geared towards maximising the public response. In addition to serious crime, the programme includes special features on matters of public concern e.g. road safety, drug abuse, missing persons and crime prevention advice.

The Garda Community Relations Bureau based at Harcourt Square, Dublin 2 has responsiblity for Crimecall. The main objective of the Garda Community Relations Bureau is to gain the support and confidence of the public. It also aims to provide a quality service to the community as a whole and the individual citizen. Crimecall supports these aims and is therefore a most important part of the Community Relations remit. It also encourages the public to engage with An Garda Síochána in the prevention and solving of crime, which is a central aspect of the Policing Plan.
