Crimestoppers help bring 17 criminals to justice in Warwickshire thanks to public information
End of year statistics released by crime-fighting Crimestoppers have revealed that almost 718 pieces of information were passed to police between April 2011 and March 2012 in Warwickshire – leading to over 17 arrests and charges. [25 June 2012]
Various campaigns such as Burglary and criminal damage, have been launched in the area to help bring wanted criminals to justice with local volunteers playing an integral role in engaging with local communities and finding out which crimes are affecting them.
With the charity celebrating its 25th anniversary next year, these numbers represent a continuing awareness and trust of Crimestoppers as both a charity, and an organisation that aids the fight against crime.
Regional Manager for West Midlands, Pauline Hadley, said: “We continue to work hard in Warwickshire to ensure that the area is a safe 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 anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through our secure online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.”
Across the UK, information passed onto the police by Crimestoppers increased by almost five per cent.
Crimestoppers operates the 24/7 0800 555 111 telephone number for people to pass on information about crimes anonymously. Information can also be passed anonymously through the charity’s online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
