Messages of thanks
Frank Duffield, Chair of Humberside Crimestoppers, paid tribute to the contribution made by volunteers: “Reducing crime and making our communities safer places to live and work is our reason for being.
"Without committed, knowledgeable volunteers, we simply could not achieve in the way we have over the last 25 years. These volunteers come from across the Humberside area and freely give up their time to help us achieve our goals. This event is about acknowledging that and simply saying thank you.”
Humberside Police and Crime Commissioner Matthew Grove said: “Humberside Police has a dedicated army of volunteers who work tirelessly to improve safety in their communities. Their contribution is extremely valued and I’m looking forward to meeting and thanking some of them personally”
Humberside Police Chief Constable Justine Curran said: “Crimestoppers is a brilliant tool that helps us make arrests, recover drugs and stop more people being victims of crime. Getting that message out to people is really important, so it’s great to be able to say thank you to the people who have been doing that in the Humberside area.”
