Residents of Northampton, we need your help!
We've launched a campaign to tackle gang violence and organised crime gangs in Northampton.
We want to gather information - particularly regarding firearms and other weapons; to disrupt gang operations, help to recover property, and increase the number of convictions of those in possession of illegal weapons and participating in gang crime.
In the 29 years since Crimestoppers was founded, we have never broken our guarantee of anonymity.
- Your information has the potential to help save a life.
- We don’t take personal details and we can’t trace calls or information given online.
- You won’t have to give a statement to police or appear in court.
We don’t want to know who you are, just what you know.
If you're concerned about someone you feel may be getting involved in a gang, here are some possible indicators in their behaviour:-
- Being secretive
- Becoming withdrawn
- Suddenly having lots of money
- Wearng new expensive clothes
- Showing signs of taking drugs
- Skipping school
- Changes in friends and way they talk - for instance, using new slang words
