Crimestoppers is an independent charity helping to find criminals and help solve crimes.

If you are worried about incidents in your area, you can report these to the authorities, anonymously if you wish. There are several ways you can do this.

They have a confidential phone number, 0800 555 111, that people can call to pass on information about crime; alternatively people can send information anonymously via Crimestoppers. Callers don't have to give their name or any personal information and calls cannot be traced.
