Johannesburg - South Africa's Yusuf Abramjee has been elected as the second vice president of Crime Stoppers International (CSI) in a conference held in Las Vegas, USA.

"It is a privilege to be entrusted by my peers to accept this position. Together with [Alex] MacDonald and [Peter] Price, I am confident that we can raise the bar and grow CSI to other parts of the world," said Abramjee in a statement on Sunday.

He was elected together with Price from Australia who took the vice-president seat. MacDonald from the Caribbean was elected as the organisation's president.

CSI is an international body that works with law enforcement and media to solve crime and spread crime stopper programmes in countries around the world.

The 33rd CSI conference, that started on Tuesday and ended on Saturday, was attended by about 400 delegates from various countries across the world.

Next year's meeting will be held in Barbados with South Africa to host it in 2014.

Abramjee spearheaded the launch of Crime Line in June 2007, the organisation that works with police to fight crime through anonymous tip-offs. He is currently also the chairperson of the SA Federation Against Copyright Theft (SAFACT) and a Lead SA activist.

He has also served as the interim chairperson of the SHOUT Foundation and was until recently chairperson of the National Press Club.
