Crimestoppers has launched a new campaign to tackle serious organised crime in West Yorkshire.  

  • A new Crimestoppers campaign is targeting serious organised crime in West Yorkshire.
  • The charity is offering rewards of up to £1,000.
  • They are asking people to contact them anonymously with any information.  

They want to highlight the danger and harm caused by gangs operating in the area, including in Keighley and Ilkley.  

Rewards of up to £1,000 are available if the information given anonymously to the charity leads to a positive result.

The charity is asking people to contact them anonymously if they know anything about those who are involved.  

The six-week campaign includes an appeal for information about large-scale criminal gangs in the area. 

Police officers

Gemma Gibbs, Yorkshire and the Humber Regional Manager for the charity Crimestoppers, said:

"Our charity is here for those who - for whatever reason - feel unable to speak directly to police, often because they fear retribution or because those involved are too close to home. Many people in the area know exactly who is involved in criminal gangs and exploitation, such as dealing in Class A drugs. 

"Do you know of people who don't have a job but appear to live a lavish lifestyle? Have you seen unusual or suspicious activity, or heard about things happening on your street that you know are harmful and illegal? 

"Crimestoppers values safe communities and hope people will support us by giving information about those bringing serious crime to Keighley and Ilkley. Over one thousand people contact us every day, trusting our charity with their crime information whilst staying 100% anonymous.

"We've always kept our promise of anonymity since our charity began over 32 years ago. Please do the right thing and help your community by either reporting what you know using our secure and simple online form at Crimestoppers-uk.org or by calling our 24/7 UK Contact Centre on freephone 0800 555 111."
