Do you know you can report a crime anonymously by contacting Crimestoppers?

As an independent charity, they are not part of the police. When you contact Crimestoppers you won’t be identified. The only person who knows you contacted Crimestoppers with information is you.

It can be difficult to come forward with information. You might have seen or heard something about a crime but don’t know what to do, or are scared to come forward. It’s easy to think there is nothing you can do, but Crimestoppers offer you a safe way to do this.

Talking things through helps you provide the full picture and makes the best use of your information. Call 0800 555 111 any time to talk to one of Crimestoppers’ experienced call agents.

  • They will ask questions about the crime you have information on but will never ask questions about you.
  • Ring when you’ve got time to talk and won’t be disturbed.
  • If you are concerned your call could be traced, dial 141 before 0800 555 111, which blocks your phone number.
  • You can use a phone box and it’s free.
  • Calls are free from a landline and don’t show up on a BT or cable phone bill.
  • Calls by mobile phone may show up on an itemised bill.
  •    The team would like to express their appreciation for your reports of suspicious activities in the neighbourhood. If you wish to report anything, such as rogue traders, please telephone 101 to ensure that the incident is logged. The SNT telephone or email box is not monitored 24/7 and therefore there may be a delay in the response or alert.If you have any general concerns, questions or suggestions for the Wellesbourne Safer Neighbourhood Team please call this number: 01789 444600, or email:
