anonymous reporting can help keep streets safe

1 November 2021 - Latest news

believe housing’s partnership with national charity CrimeStoppers can help to make communities safer.

Anything crime-related on your street can be reported anonymously to CrimeStoppers. It could be something that is unsettling you, maybe you know what you’ve seen is crime-related, or it could just seem suspicious. Burglaries and theft don’t just cost you money, they can be very upsetting too.

You don’t have to know everything about a problem to speak up about it. Contact with CrimeStoppers is always anonymous. Anonymous reporting through CrimeStoppers has helped reunite people with stolen goods, made communities safer and brought people to justice.

Tell CrimeStoppers about:

  • Someone who’s committing burglaries in your area
  • Planned break ins – where and when
  • Gangs who target vulnerable victims
  • Who’s selling stolen goods, and where
  • People who steal car keys from homes, and then their cars
  • The motives of those who carry out thefts and use weapons
  • Unexplained wealth on your street
  • If you see lots of visitors to a neighbour’s house at unusual times

Safer Neighbourhoods Manager at believe housing, Karen Gardner, said:

“We want everyone to feel safe and comfortable in their home. We know that only a small number of believe housing customers are likely to be directly affected by crime. But we want to make sure that anyone who is has the best possible opportunities to tackle it and that’s why we’ve partnered with CrimeStoppers.

“CrimeStoppers don’t ask for your details, only for the information you know about the crime, or suspected crime. Your details won’t be forwarded on and you won’t be contacted by the police about your report. Even believe housing won’t hear about it. It genuinely is anonymous; the number doesn’t even show up on your phone bill.”
