Crimestoppers has received an overwhelming response from the public with information relating to the recent heinous outbreaks of riots across the UK.
Michael Laurie CBE, Crimestoppers’ Chief Executive said: “I condemn the recent incidents, the violence and looting across the UK was criminal and disgraceful.
“I would encourage members of the public to continue providing us with information on those they know are responsible for these heinous acts of violence or looting.
“This information will lead to those committing violent acts that harm their fellow citizens being arrested and facing justice.
“We won’t ask for your name and calls are never traced or recorded. You won’t have to go to court or give a statement to the Police – we only want to know what you know, not who you are. In the 23 years that Crimestoppers has been running we have never broken our anonymity promise.”
Anyone wishing to pass on information anonymously about those involved in recent violent disorder incidents across the country can do so by contacting the charity on 0800 555 111 or via our secure online form.
