ADT Fire and Security Pledges To Assist Crimestoppers Charity

ADT Fire And Security : 20 May, 2010  (Company News)
UK based crime prevention and assistance charity receives support as ADT chooses Crimestoppers as its charity for 2010
ADT, a United Kingdom provider of electronic fire and security solutions, has selected Crimestoppers as its chosen UK Charity of the Year 2010. ADT's partnership with Crimestoppers will help raise awareness of the vital work the charity does in helping law enforcement agencies solve crime and take criminals off the streets in the United Kingdom.

Crimestoppers has 40 regional volunteer committees, which cover the whole of the UK and raise funds, run campaigns and gain publicity to inform the public about the service the charity offers. ADT's sponsorship will provide crucial funds allowing Crimestoppers to continue its operations within the UK, including running its 24/7 call bureau and delivering targeted crime campaigns.

Sarah Eldon, Crimestoppers' Head of Fundraising, said: "We are extremely proud to have been chosen as ADT's Charity of the Year. It's a fantastic result for Crimestoppers. Our partnership with ADT will enable us to continue to provide an anonymous means of reporting criminal offences, helping law enforcement solve crimes and ultimately make the UK a safer place."

"ADT helps protect over 410,000 businesses and homeowners in the UK, so we obviously feel strongly about the safety of our nation. We are proud to be associated with Crimestoppers and to help support the charity's excellent work in engaging with the public to cut crime and the fear it creates," said Sheilagh Hannah, Business Development & Marketing Director for ADT. "We hope that our contribution will raise Crimestopper's profile, helping the organisation continue the great work it has done over the last 20 years. ADT looks forward to continuing our partnership into the future."

In 2009/2010, Crimestoppers received 89,098 actionable calls and online forms, providing useful information on a variety of crimes and offences.

As a result of information passed to Crimestoppers:

• Every day 20 people are arrested and charged.
• One person every eight days is charged with murder.
• Since the charity began 22 years ago over £185 million worth of drugs has been seized.
