“One of the most influential figures of our time.”
The MacAleese Files is about sharing knowledge, experience and thoughts about crime issues from around the world.
Armed with knowledge, we can all make a difference.
Much like on a snowy day in March 1976 when I sat down at a typewriter in the detective unit at the Albuquerque Police Department and typed the words:
“Crime – Why?” on a blank sheet of paper.
Less than an hour later I had developed the framework for Crime Stoppers, a program that has helped police solve almost two million crimes over the years.
The MacAleese Files is a site dedicated to citizens around the world. To the many incredible, yet ordinary people I have encountered over the years.
To the dedicated souls who have worked long and hard to make Crime Stoppers the most effective crime fighting program in history.
To the victims of crime, many of whom never truly recover from their experiences.
This site is also dedicated to the countless brave men and women in uniform who put their lives on the line every day and to their long-suffering families who often bear the brunt of police life.
Join Ron Franks, former CEO of Crime Stoppers Tasmania and I at The MacAleese Files, to share your experiences, knowledge and to provide solutions for the benefit of citizens, business people and community leaders.

Together we can continue to make the world a better place for all of us.
