With over 100 shootings in Birmingham during the last year, Crimestoppers has launched a campaign to urge people to protect the ones they care about from gun crime. Your information has the potential to save a life if you know of someone illegally carrying and using guns.
We won't ask your name. Won't judge. Just listen to what you know and pass it on for you. 100% anonymously, always. You can call us on 0800 555 111 or visit our online form to report information on gun crime in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
Throughout 2017, our UK Contact Centre received nearly 500 pieces of information about gun crime from the public in the West Midlands who trusted us to pass on information.
Figures from the Office of National Statistics show that gun crimes are up in England and Wales by 27% in the year to June 2017.
Last year a surge in gun crime across the West Midlands included incidents such as attempted murder, malicious wounding and drive-by shooting.
