Crimestoppers launch debate on crime



Independent crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers is today launching a national discussion on key crimes affecting the UK public.

The Crime Matters national blog is a new approach for the charity to engage with the general public about crimes that impact their lives.

Crimestoppers conducted a survey to find out from the public what issues really troubled them.

The results showed youth-related crime, online crime and domestic violence topped the poll.

Now, the Crime Matters blog will spend the next five days focused on these key issues and highlighting the important work being done to fight these and all other crimes across the UK.

There will be blogs from crime experts, academics, MPs and journalists.

People can their say on the dedicated blog; www.blog.crimestoppers-uk.org

Mark Hallas, CEO for Crimestoppers said: “The Crime Matters week will provide us and the country with vital information that can inform our future activity and ensure that we are tackling crimes that are of importance to communities across the UK that we serve.

“It is a great opportunity for crime experts, Crimestoppers supporters and the general public to come together to share views on crime.”
