Huge increase in Scots helping to solve crimes

From Ludo Thierry

I wonder if the Hootsmon found room for this good news story from Scotland (carried on the Scottish Legal site – but the beeb Scotland website managed not to carry it): Link and snippets below:

Independent charity Crimestoppers has received a record number of reports from across Scotland over the past year.

There has been a 6.3 per cent increase in anonymous tips sent to Police Scotland, to 14,534 and a 45 per cent increase over the past three years.

There was also a 39.5 per cent increase in arrests, to 738 while 13 people were arrested and charged with murder/unlawful killings.

Angela Parker, national manager for Crimestoppers Scotland, said: “This is an impressive increase that shows how people are putting their trust in our charity as a way to pass on crime information whilst remaining 100 per cent anonymous. Always.”
