Keeping our communities safe

Enfield Council is pleased to be supporting the Hard Calls Save Lives campaign, enabling people to come forward with information about knife crime in their communities.

If you’re concerned about knife crime in your area, there are things you can do.

We know that it can be difficult to pick up the phone. But every little bit of information is useful in the fight against knife crime. Sharing information with Crimestoppers (a charity who are independent from the police) can help to make our communities safer. Did you know:

Crimestoppers is not the police

They are an independent charity working to help communities

Everything you share is 100% anonymous - calls are never recorded or traced and you will not be asked to reveal your name or personal details. Information from anonymous calls will be sent to the best people to deal with it, without witness statements or courts.

No information is insignificant - your information, however small, could be the last piece of the puzzle. All information is reviewed, and where possible, acted upon, to help to stop crime.

You will be listened to – you know best when things don’t feel right in your neighbourhood. Crimestoppers will know what to do with your concerns and pass it on for you anonymously, without any judgment.

Every call is important and making the call can save the life of someone’s son or daughter. If you think you may know something about knife crime, call Crimestoppers 100% anonymously on 0800 555 111.

Enfield Council Leader, Cllr Nesil Caliskan, said: “If you’re concerned about knife crime in your area, there are things you can do. We are absolutely committed to making our neighbourhoods safer and I’d urge people with information that can help achieve that aim to let Crimestoppers know.

“You’ll remain anonymous, and you may provide vital information that enables us to keep you, your family and your community safer. I know it may not be easy, but it is the right thing to do and it will make a real difference in our communities.”
