Insights, Strategy & the Idea
The Crime-Report Hotline is a telephone channel through which the Rio population can anonymously inform the Police about crimes. It played a crucial role at the capture of criminals from the Alemão slum complex, the HQ of Rio’s main criminal organisation. Tapping into the positive responses in the media, we decided to create an action that would encourage citizens to continue collaborating with the Crime-Report Hotline, an action that would impact people on the streets.

Creative Execution
In order to get even closer to the population, we turned outdoor walls across town into billboards, by making use of graffiti art, a form of art that used to be marginalised and persecuted by the Police is now fighting crime. Those walls, located at strategic spots in Rio de Janeiro, carried messages and images that encouraged the population to denounce criminals through the phone number of the Crime-Report Hotline.

Results and Effectiveness
The impact was immediate, on the streets, on the media and on the Internet. The population approved of the project: thousands of messages complimenting the action were posted on the website of the organisation, on blogs, and social networks. There was spontaneous coverage by print media, TV and the Internet, doubling the number of phone calls to report crimes in Rio de Janeiro.
