Our local campaigns, events and other initiatives, are focussed on the needs and priorities of communities in Sussex, in order to raise awareness of crime and encourage its reporting. Whenever appropriate, our activities reflect Crimestoppers' national initiatives, as well as the crime prevention and policing priorities in Sussex.

  Date TBC 2016 Breaking Down Barriers to 'Hard to Reach' Groups

There are groups within our communities that for whatever reason are reluctant to communicate directly with the police. We will seek to establish who/where these groups are and which avenues of communication would be most effective in each case.

Campaigns will then be devised to publicise  Crimestoppers' anonymous reporting services and evaluate the effectiveness of the communication avenues identified.

The overall aim is to increase intelligence flows from difficult to reach sectors of the community.
