THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 7TH 2017
Today and tomorrow we will be displaying the faces of some of the Most Wanted individuals in Hampshire, wanted for offences that include burglary, recall to prison and assault.
The images of the 13 Most Wanted will be seen on a digital advan at various locations across Hampshire today and tomorrow, as the charity builds on the success of last year’s Most Wanted campaign.
Everyone who contacts us is guaranteed to remain completely anonymous, and no personal details are ever asked for.
From April 2016-March 2017, we received over 2,500 pieces of information from people in Hampshire concerned about crime. The largest number related to drugs trafficking, disqualified and uninsured drivers, drink driving, and theft. Whilst our 0800 555 111 number remains popular, more people contacted us via our non-traceable online form than ever before.
Last month alone, our national Most Wanted website received over 37,000 views.
Sarah-Jane Prew, Regional Manager for Crimestoppers in Hampshire and the Isle of Wight, said: “We believe everyone has the right to be safe from crime which is why we are urging the public to check the faces of the people highlighted in our Most Wanted gallery. Please contact us immediately if you know the whereabouts of any of them.
“The response in previous years from people in Hampshire has been incredibly supportive. Our Most Wanted campaign succeeds thanks to our guarantee that everyone who contacts us remains 100% anonymous. As a charity, we ensure you won’t have to give your personal details, speak to the police or go to court. Just pass on the information you have and then we’ll deal with the rest.”
Our Most Wanted was launched in 2005 – at the time it was the first and only national online source of people in the UK who are wanted by law enforcement.
We ask for everyone to visit Most Wanted and should you recognise any of the suspects, please contact us anonymously on 0800 555 111 or use our non-traceable online form.
