Following a number of knife crime incidents in Wandsworth, we're offering a reward of up to £5,000 for information that leads to the arrest and charge of those in the borough responsible for knife crime that has caused serious injury or death*.
The reward only applies to information given directly to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or via our non-traceable online form – it does not apply to information given to the police.
Our Director of Operations, Roger Critchell, says: “Carrying a knife can lead to horrific consequences for the victims, their family and friends. In view of recent incidents in the borough of Wandsworth, we have agreed to put up a reward to encourage those with information to contact our charity.
“Anyone who contacts Crimestoppers does so 100% anonymously. We don’t ask for your personal details – all we want to know is what you know, not who you are. By working together we can help to make our communities safe.”
Did you know that Crimestoppers also runs a dedicated youth service – Fearless.org – which is aimed at young people aged 11–16 years? The Fearless website explores the consequences of being involved in knife crime, and provides young people with useful and educational information about what can happen if they carry knives. Fearless.org also offers a safe way for young people to pass on information about knife crime completely anonymously.
If you have any information about knife crime, please contact us anonymously on 0800 555 111 or through our Anonymous Online Form.
*Note: The reward is valid for three months and will only qualify if information is passed to Crimestoppers’ 0800 555 111 number or anonymous online form at www.crimestoppers-uk.org. Information passed directly to police will not qualify.
