Be Fearless against shoplifting!

I’m pleased to tell you that Crimestoppers volunteers and staff have been taking to the streets to inform members of the public about the anonymous service that the charity provides for people to pass on information about crime.

On 2 and 3 September, representatives from Hampshire & Isle of Wight Crimestoppers and Fearless, the charity’s brand for young people, visited Gunwharf Quays in Portsmouth to speak to shoppers about the charity and its partnership with Land Securities.

Crimestoppers and commercial property company, Land Securities, have launched a pilot campaign in Portsmouth to raise awareness of the Crimestoppers charity and to address the issues related to shoplifting.

Fearless giveaways
Representatives from Fearless gave away free fearless.org draw string bags to young people and explained to shoppers about the three ways they can contact the charity anonymously with information about crime. A special Fearless poster was also designed especially for the event (see right).
Passing on information about crime

Fearless is Crimestoppers’ youth brand which introduces young people to the anonymous service provided by Crimestoppers. It consists of the website fearless.org where young people can get information about crimes that affect them. Young people can also use the website to pass on information about crime anonymously.
In addition to fearless.org, the Fearless team also provide workshops about the service in schools, youth groups and at special events.
So everyone, young and old, can be active in the fight against crime!
