Independent charity Crimestoppers has teamed up with Forth Valley Division, Police Scotland and the Forth Valley Alcohol and Drugs Partnership and are working together to discourage members of the public from buying alcohol for anyone under 18.
Posters and carrier bags will be distributed throughout the division to licensed premises which encourages people to anonymously report those responsible for purchasing alcohol on behalf of young people to Crimestoppers.
National Manager for Crimestoppers Scotland, Kate Jackson says, “Local people are often aware who is responsible for making these purchases which they pass on to young people. You can do the right thing by telling us and by doing so; possibly prevent episodes of anti-social behavior or danger to young people in your community. We do not ask for your name; only what you know so no-one will ever know that you have made the call.”
Information can be given by calling Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 or it through our Anonymous Online Form.
