Want the Police to hear your voice?

We are offering you the chance…..

We are looking for two young people to attend a meeting at Croydon Police Station.

You’ll have the opportunity to meet Croydon’s Borough Commander and ask him questions about local policing and the police’s relationship towards young people. You could really make a difference!

If you would like to be one of our two, please email: emma@4wdfoundation.org with your name, age and briefly explain why you would like to attend.

Know someone with a knife?

Text Crimestoppers 88551

Texts should include four pieces of information about those carrying knives:

  1. Name and/or Nickname
  2. School
  3. Year
  4. Postcode/Area

Texts are charged at standard network rates. Remember to delete the text from your sent box.

In a bid to help fight knife crime, the charity Crimestoppers is encouraging young people to pass on information about who is carrying knives in their schools, by sending a simple text message to a dedicated anonymous hotline.

Crimestoppers piloted the texting service in London. The pilot, held from August 2008 to April 2009, was hailed a success by both police and young people. The number of pieces of actionable information relating to knife crime received in London trebled from August 2008-March 2009. The service is now being rolled out nationally.

The text messages are routed through special software, developed by mBlox, the world’s largest mobile transaction network, and Anderson Software, applications specialist for law enforcement, to ensure they remain anonymous when passed onto the police. Crimestoppers cannot trace the mobile number or any other details about the text message sender.
