Independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers is building on its ‘Crime Matters’ campaign to appeal for enthusiastic members of the public to join its volunteer committee in Nottinghamshire and support the fight against crime in the county.
The charity, which has recently marked its 25th year, has launched a national discussion on key crimes affecting the UK public and is now seeking out willing individuals to join its growing family of crime fighters In Nottinghamshire alone, 2527 pieces of actionable information were received by Crimestoppers in the year 2012/13 leading to 130 arrests.
Whether your expertise is in business, the media, or maybe even fundraising, we’d love to hear from you – all we ask is that you have a passion for your local area and you share the same vision as we do – that everyone deserves to live in a community free of crime.
East Midlands Regional Manager, Kiran Dhanda, said: “Volunteering for Crimestoppers is a great way to make a difference and I’m really looking forward to growing our team to make Nottinghamshire a safer place to live and work.”
“You can dedicate as much or as little time as you like – every little helps and your efforts will be rewarded with the satisfaction that you are playing a part in keeping your community safe.”
"Roles could be anything from representing Crimestoppers at major events, visiting schools and business organisations to talk about Crimestoppers or simply placing posters and information cards throughout your community.
"Any help would be greatly appreciated. You really could make a difference.''
Crimestoppers is an independent charity which helps the police to solve crimes, making communities safer. It does this by operating the 24/7 telephone number 0800 555 111 which people can ring to pass on information about crimes anonymously. They can also use our ‘giving information’ form via our website www.crimestoppers-uk.org.
Around 20 people are arrested and charged every day as a result of information given to Crimestoppers.
