Making an impact in Gloucestershire

In two decades, more than 18,000 pieces of information about crimes in Gloucestershire have been passed on to the police through Crimestoppers.

This has resulted in more than 1,300 arrests and charges as well as £566,000 worth of property being recovered and over £850,000 worth of drugs seized.

“In 21 years, the Gloucesteshire committee has had a total of 50 volunteers who have launched 40 campaigns locally.

“They have a wealth of expertise – from marketing to campaigns and fundraising experience.

“They’re vital to helping spread the Crimestoppers message to all the corners of the country.

“There is plenty of good work to be done in the county and we’re sure there are more willing volunteers out there who would like to keep their communities safe.”

- Emily van der Lely, Regional Manager for Gloucestershire

“I think the number of arrests, actionable calls and amount of stolen property recovered over the 21 years speaks for itself.

“We have a great group of committee members and I am still in touch with many who have served over the years.

“Crimestoppers is a charity that supports everyone and I’m proud to have supported the cause for so many years.”

- Darren Stevens,
Gloucestershire Crimestoppers Volunteer
