Organisation: Gloucestershire Crimestoppers
About this volunteer-involing organisation
Crimestoppers makes it possible for anyone with information on any crime type to report it anonymously 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year, by phone or online – they are only interested in what you know, not who you are! They also have a youth brand for those aged 11 upwards. Fearless.org is a site where young people can access non-judgemental information and advice about crime and criminality. It provides them with a safe place to give information about crime - 100% anonymously.
The Gloucestershire Committee is strong, with very committed members, who all give their time for free. They run a tight ship and use funds wisely on initiatives that create impact, with the support of the Regional Manager.
Most recently this has included:
• Fearless from Knife Crime prevent sessions going into Secondary Schools
• An Ambassador programme – asking local businesses and organisations to join us in raising awareness
• Switch on your lights for safe streets – a burglary campaign which provided prevention advice and raised awareness of Crimestoppers across the county
