Keeping our community safe

Headline Date 05-11-2020

Information is needed to help detect and prevent knife crime, but there are barriers that stop this being shared. The Hard Calls Saves Lives campaign aims to help people overcome some of these barriers and encourage them to make a call to Crimestoppers if things don’t feel right. We know that it can be difficult to pick up the phone. But every little bit of information is useful in the fight against knife crime. Encouraging the people in your business or residences to share information with Crimestoppers can help to make our communities safer. If you’re concerned about knife crime in your area, there are things you can do.

Did you know:

  • Crimestoppers is not the police – they are an independent charity working to help communities
  • Everything you share is 100% anonymous, calls are never recorded or traced and you will not be asked to reveal your name or personal details.
  • Information from anonymous calls will be sent to
    the best people to deal with it, without witness statements or courts.
  • No information is insignificant
  • Your information, however small, could be the last piece of the
    puzzle. All information is reviewed, and where possible, acted upon, to help to stop crime.
  • You will be listened to
  • You know best when things don’t feel right in your neighbourhood.
  • Crimestoppers will know what to do with your concerns and pass it on for you anonymously, without any judgment.

Every call is important and making the call can save the life of someone’s son or daughter. If you think you may know something about knife crime, call Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on
0800 555 111.
