THE amount of information passed to the police through Crimestoppers has increased.

In 2013 people in Sussex reported 2,356 pieces of information to the police through the independent charity – an increase of 9.9% on the previous year.

Carolyn Randall, area manager for Sussex, said: “What these results represent is a continued effort from the public and Crimestoppers to keep our communities safe and bring wanted criminals to justice.

“I cannot thank our local communities enough for their efforts and for trusting us with their information – and to our volunteers who dedicate so much of their time to ensure we continue the fight to provide a crime-free community.

“With your help, you can make these results even better next year by contacting Crimestoppers anonymously about criminal activity you are aware of by calling us on 0800 555 111 or through our anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org.”

The charity is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

This can't be true! We are reliably informed by the top echelons of the Police Service that it is going down. Could someone possibly suggest that their eminences are purveying mistruths?
To avoid any essence of politic-speak or diplomacy, is someone suggesting that they are lying b@stards? Oh deary me!
