Crimestoppers launches campaign to tackle illegal weapons in West Yorkshire

We're urging people in West Yorkshire to contact us with information on people who have illegal guns and weapons. As an independent charity we can take information about crime and pass it on to the police, whilst maintaining the anonymity of those who've provided the information.

West Yorkshire Police have just completed a weapons surrender across the county, where people were encouraged to give up their weapons to help reduce the risk either of the weapons ending up in the wrong hands, or the owners being sued for criminal activity.

Now we at Crimestoppers have launched a follow-on campaign to encourage people to give information about those who still have illegal guns and other weapons, and any crimes that have involved weapons.

Gemma Wilson, Regional Manager for Crimestoppers in Yorkshire, said: "People who have illegal guns and weapons have had the opportunity to surrender those items and help keep the streets of West Yorkshire safe. Now we want to know who still has access to these weapons, where they are and what they are being used for. Crimestoppers is here for you and we need you to help us make West Yorkshire streets safe.  You can contact us anonymously - a single piece of information can make a huge difference.

"We can promise complete anonymity for everyone who calls our 0800 555 111 number, or who uses our online form here on our website. We have kept that promise of anonymity since we were founded, 29 years ago. We are completely accessible to everyone and can take reports 24 hours a day, seven days a week, in any language."
