SAMM are proud to support the Hardest Calls campaign launched by the Metropolitan Police Service and independent charity, Crimestoppers. Five traumatically bereaved mothers who lost their sons to knife crime have shared their emotional stories:
It can be daunting to pass on information about knife crime. You might be unsure what information is useful or what happens to it. Crimestoppers are not the police. They are an independent charity who provide a safe place for people to speak up about crime. Anything you report to crimestoppers is 100% anonymous. Crimestoppers has an anonymity guarantee, which has never been broken. When you make a call, a specially trained call agent will support you without judgement. They won’t ask how you’ve obtained the information. It may feel like a hard call, but your call could stop someone else’s son or daughter being killed.
Call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or report online. Search ‘Hard Calls Saves Lives’.
