We passed on nearly 2,000 pieces of information to Devon and Cornwall Police and other law enforcement agencies in the region in the last year.

Some of these related to the most serious of crimes, including murder, rape, human trafficking, robbery and drugs supply. Just under 200 people were arrested and charged with an assortment of criminal offences as a result of the information.

“These are great results and represent a sustained determination and effort from the public, Crimestoppers and the law enforcement agencies to keep our communities safe and bring wanted people to justice. Year in and year out the results obtained through Crimestoppers are absolutely amazing. I cannot thank our local community enough for the information they give anonymously. With the public’s continued help these results can be even better next year.”
