Fighting Crime – Cape and Mask Not Required

Filed under: Opinion — admin @ 3:06 pm

You don’t have to be a superhero to help fight crime, simple things like just looking out your window at your neighbours home, car or garage or just listening out for any suspicious noises is, in many cases, enough to deter many thieves. There are also other organisations out there to help fight crime, Neighbourhood Watch and Crime Stoppers.

fighting-crimeCrime Stoppers are an independent charity working to fight crime, they encourage people to phone, text and go on line to tell (anonymously) about any crime or persons they suspect of committing an offence. Crime stoppers are run independently from the government and the police and all information passed on is kept
confidential, even crimes where a reward is given.

This month Crime Stoppers reported that since April 2009, over £900,000 of illegal drugs have been taken off our streets, nearly £500,000 of stolen goods have been recovered, 568 criminals have been arrested and charged and more than 6,500 anonymously called the Crime Stoppers hotline.

Last year saw 28 teenagers killed in knife attacks in London alone, and 270 in total in England and Wales, Crime Stoppers have running their Stop Knife Crime, project in a hope that teenagers will text in if they see anyone carrying a knife or a similar weapon.

They have their own website where you can access pages which will help you with crime prevention including identity theft and burglary hotspots which can be useful when looking for home and car insurance.
