Calls from members of the public have led to dozens of arrests in the area in the past year, a crime-fighting charity has revealed.
Crimestoppers statistics show that 2,736 pieces of information were passed to police in the Thames Valley between April 2011 and March 2012, leading to 122 positive outcomes, 89 arrests and charges and 30 people featured on the Most Wanted Website being arrested.
Julia Hughes, projects coordinator for the Thames Valley, said: “Every little piece of information that the public provides goes to build a bigger picture on crime in our area.
“Some calls provide information that is just part of the jigsaw and others provide the whole story, but they are all of value and are all taken seriously.”
Call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 to pass on information about crimes anonymously and free of charge, or for information on becoming a volunteer, visit www.crimestoppers-uk.org/volunteer
