As Crimestoppers in Derbyshire goes on the hunt for more volunteer committee members and also a chairperson, Police and Crime Commissioner Alan Charles said today: “This is a great opportunity to help make your communities safer.”
He pointed out: “The committee helps to tackle criminality on so many fronts, including giving valuable support to campaigns like modern slavery and child sexual exploitation. Encouraging people to call Crimestoppers anonymously with information about crime leads to 20 people being arrested and charged every day.”
Crimestoppers has also supported the roll-out of the Fearless drama project in Derbyshire which, with funding from the Commissioner, works to empower young people to fight crime by showing them how and where to get help.
The committee’s new chairperson will need the experience to deliver verbal and written proposals and presentations to a senior level, have highly developed interpersonal and networking skills and be able to liaise with partners in the statutory, corporate and media fields. Specific roles for new committee members could involve their own particular skills, such as in social media.
Anyone interested in these roles should email firstname.lastname@example.org.
