Gangs don't care - do you?
Crimestoppers are running a campaign to encourage Essex residents to speak up about gang-related crime on their streets.
Knives, guns, violence, drugs, sexual exploitation and theft are all issues associated with gangs.
Crimestoppers as an independent charity, want to raise awareness among members of the public as well as encourage those with vital information to contact us anonymously.
We are not the police and we are not a TV programme.
or you can contact Crimestoppers 100% anonymously through a 24-hour number, 0800 555 111
Crimestoppers takes the fear out of giving information on any type of crime. They are not the police and they don’t take your personal details and they can’t trace the information you give by phone or online. You won’t have to give a witness statement to the police and you will not be asked to attend court.
Crimestoppers plays a significant part in the fight against crime. 1,000 people contact the charity every day with information about crime, and the police are able to make an average of 14 arrests per day as a result - find out more about Crimestoppers
Members of the public are eligible to claim a reward of up to £1,000 if their information given to Crimestoppers through the 0800 555 111 number or the Anonymous Online Form, leads to a successful arrest and charge. Note: Information passed directly to police will not qualify.
