Crimestoppers says thanks to the public for information that helped bring even more criminals to justice in Surrey
Our year end statistics show that 1121 pieces of information were passed from Crimestoppers to Surrey Police between April 2011 and March 2012 an increase of 22 per cent on last year. [14 June 2012]
Various campaigns such as “Cash in your pocket” targeted at information about burglary, Most Wanted and recently “Rat on a Rat” have been launched in the county to help bring criminals to justice. The Surrey Crimestoppers Committee is absolutely delighted by these results and this is a positive sign of the work our volunteers are conducting in the area.

We have 13 local volunteers playing an integral role in engaging with local communities and spreading awareness of the charity and anonymous reporting facility it provides to the public in Surrey.
With the charity celebrating its 25th anniversary next year, these statistics represent a continuing awareness and trust of Crimestoppers as both a charity, and an organisation that aids the fight against crime.
Surrey Crimestoppers Volunteer Chairman, Tim Prideaux JP, DL said: “We continue to work hard in Surrey to ensure that the area is an even safer place for people to live in and criminals are brought to justice.
“With your help, you can bring even more criminals to justice next year by contacting Crimestoppers without revealing your identity on 0800 555 111 or through our secure online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.”
Surrey Police Assistant Chief Constable Jerry Kirkby said: "The Crimestoppers anonymous reporting system continues to be a valuable tool in the fight against crime. Keeping our communities safe is a responsibility we all share and I would encourage everyone to play their part. Passing information to the police, either directly or via Crimestoppers, could prevent criminal activity or help to catch offenders."
Across the UK, information passed onto the police by Crimestoppers increased by almost five per cent.
