SCORES of crimes have been solved in Calderdale thanks to the public putting names to faces in CCTV photos.
More than 80 people who officers believed were suspects for or witnesses to crimes in the district were identified after their pictures were published in the Courier and online last year.
The figures were revealed along with the latest batch of CCTV images of people police want to speak to, pictured right.
Superintendent Martin Lister, head of Operations for Calderdale Police, said: “There is little doubt that putting pictures in the public domain sends a message to criminals that there is nowhere to hide in Calderdale. They will be caught.”
Superintendent Lister added police are able to use CCTV from private and public cameras and it is an important tool for helping bring people to justice.
Officers make regular appeals for help identify people in CCTV images like the ones pictured here, asking them or anyone who knows them to get in touch.
They say the images may be of suspects of witnesses, and could hold information vital to their inquiries.
Anyone who features in these photos or knows who they are should call CrimeStoppers, where information can be passed on anonymously, on 0800 555111.
Callers should quote the reference number below each photo.
