Reporting Anonymous Crime and CRIMESTOPPERS

One Call Could Cuff Them
For anonymous crime reporting you can use
CRIMESTOPPERS 0800 555 111

The police clear up over 9,000 crimes in London every month. They do it with the help of phone calls from people like you. Calling CRIMESTOPPERS on 0800 555 111 and giving vital information means the victims can get some kind of justice.

And what do you get out of it?

Well, no public recognition for the good you've done. Because CRIMESTOPPERS is 100%, totally guaranteed ANONYMOUS. It has to be. So when you call you know you are safe.

There is a CRIMESTOPPERS campaign, aimed at encouraging people from ethnic communities to give information on criminal activity.

The new language interpreting service which has been introduced by CRIMSTOPPERS in 2004 will make it easier for people, whose first language isn't English, to give information on crime to the 0800 555 111 freephone number.

The CRIMESTOPPERS Unit will contact the language interpreting service and the caller will be put through to an interpreter who will feed the information back to the police officer, who in turn can ask the caller for further information through the interpreter if required.

London CRIMESTOPPERS offers a completely anonymous service to the caller. Callers are not asked for their name, calls are not taped or traced and the caller will not be asked to attend court. In certain circumstances a cash reward may also be given.

Metropolitan Police Deputy Assistant Commissioner Bill Griffiths, Serious Crime Group Director with Lynda King Taylor Chair of the Paddington Police/Community SWG Hyde Park at New Scotland Yard. Speaking about the CRIMESTOPPERS interpretation service, he said "We are aware that people from London's ethnically diverse communities may be hesitant to speak to the police when they have information about criminal activity because of the language barrier factor. I am confident that this campaign will alleviate the problem and highlight London CRIMESTOPPERS as a safe and completely confidential way to report crime. Only once we achieve this, can we fully meet the needs of London's diverse communities."
