If there were no police and courts andnever any punishments or deterrents to crime more people wouldfind themselves rewarded by illegal activities. On the otherhand, if strong locks are employed private and public guardsemployed who maintain a vigilant watch, if apprehension islikely, if trial is swift and the jury and the judge can be presumedto be quite accurate in distinguishing between the truly guiltyand the innocent, that part of crime which is undertaken in therational hope of reward may be reduced in total amount. ========================= The following slides take us one step towards a crime free society.

CRIMESTOPPERS Call anonymously with Information about Crime History In 1985, PC Keith Blakelock was murdered during the riots at the Broadwater Farm estate in London. Police appealed for information. Lord Ashcroft, a businessman, offered to provide the police with money for a reward to encourage somebody to come forward with information. He set up Crimestoppers in conjunction with the Commisioner of Metropolitan Police in January 1988 and together with some business colleagues who were also concerned about the rise in violent crime, they funded the UK operation. There are now 38 volunteer committees across the UK and a further increase will follow, as volunteer numbers grow sufficiently to set up these new, more locally focussed groups. This is a concept of businesses establishing a partnership with the media and the police to help solve crimes.
