Chairman - Surrey Crimestoppers
Tim Prideaux JP DL has been our Surrey Crimestoppers Committee Chairman since July 2010.
Speaking about his role Tim said, “I am delighted to be Chairman of Surrey Crimestoppers whose main purpose is to encourage anonymous calls to their phone line 0800 555 111 with information that is then passed on to Surrey Police who benefit from intelligence they may not otherwise receive. In the current financial situation Surrey Police are going to need more help than ever to keep Surrey safer. I want to raise the profile of Crimestoppers so that we can get more support from the Surrey community, strengthen our financial position to do more campaigns in the future and consequently increase the number of calls we receive.”
Tim then went on to say “It is a challenging time but also one of great opportunities and I am really excited about the future for Surrey Crimestoppers”. Tim also thanked Kevin Morris (Deputy Chairman) for working unceasingly to get Surrey Crimestoppers accepted as an indispensable tool in the fight against crime.

Mayor asks locals to volunteer for community
This year one of our committee members reluctantly had to stand down. Cllr Dr Lynne Hack has been elected as Mayor of Reigate & Banstead Borough Council and will be quite busy with her new role. Her committment to Crimestoppers however continues. The new Mayor has asked local people to sign up for 150 minutes of volunteer work to mark the borough's 150th anniversary.
Councillor Dr Lynne Hack was elected Mayor at the Reigate & Banstead Borough Council annual meeting on Thursday (May 23).
In her inaugural Mayoral speech Dr Hack told councillors and the public: "I am looking forward to a very busy and fulfilling year as Mayor of Reigate & Banstead.
"We are celebrating the 150th anniversary of Reigate and Redhill becoming a municipal borough and there will be lots of events to mark the occasion.
"To celebrate our 150 years in existence, I am asking councillors and residents to undertake 150 minutes of volunteering and give something back to our community.
"Each year, we recognise the time and commitment our volunteers contribute at the Volunteer Awards."
The Mayor, a cancer research scientist and expert in cancer genetics, will be supported by her husband Ian at public engagements and events during the 2013-2014 term.
Dr Hack will support Surrey Crimestoppers and The Royal Marsden Hospital during her Mayoral year, saying: "My charities for the year are Surrey Crimestoppers, an independent charity enabling people to call and give information about local crime anonymously, and The Royal Marsden Hospital, which researches into the study and treatment of cancer.
"I look forward to supporting the work of these charities."
We wish her and her husband Ian all the very best for the coming year.
Surrey Crimestoppers employs a part time paid member of staff, Angela Hollinshead, who is the Area Co-ordinator for Surrey.
