Last year, the independent charity Crimestoppers passed over 1,000 actionable pieces of information to Gloucestershire’s constabulary – that one call can make all the difference.
The Gloucestershire Volunteer Committee is looking to publicise the work they do within the county, and to appeal for new volunteers.
The committee wants everyone to have the opportunity to learn about Crimestoppers and the important anonymous service we have provided for the last 29 years, and Gloucestershire residents and supporters are encouraged to join the many thousands of people who tell Crimestoppers what they know about crime, without revealing their identities.

Tony Butler, Committee Chair, said: “Crimestoppers makes a real difference to communities. It empowers individuals to give information about criminals safely and anonymously.
“We are hoping that this event will help to promote our service and maybe encourage people to volunteer and work on local campaigns.”
Emily Van Der Lely, Regional Manager for Crimestoppers in Gloucestershire, added: “Volunteers bring energy, enthusiasm and a concern for the welfare of the local community. They also bring their own ideas and expertise, which is what helps to bring about such fantastic results.
“We encourage anyone with a real interest in Crimestoppers to join us by volunteering or by becoming a Charity Ambassador, helping to spread the message that anyone with information on crime can report anonymously.”
