Help Trace Wanted Offenders in London

Webpages have been launched by the Metropolitan Police Service (MPS) and crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers to help trace wanted offenders in London.

London's Most Wanted seeks the public's help in the capital, the UK and around the world, to locate people who have committed, or are suspected of committing serious crimes, but who have so far evaded capture.

The pages are hosted by Crimestoppers and anybody who has information about any suspect featured on London's Most Wanted can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111 or provide information via their online form.

Countering Terrorism 'No Call is a Waste of Time.'

The public are being encouraged to pick up the phone and report any activity or behaviour which is suspicious or out of the ordinary to the confidential Anti-Terrorist Hotline on 0800 789 321.

The campaign ran for a month on national and regional radio, in national and regional press and in a range of magazines. The advert includes a picture of what appears to be a normal neighbourhood garage brimming with bottles of chemicals and boxes. It asks the reader to consider what they see and questions whether the garage is being used by a handyman, a pest controller - or whether it is being used as storage by a bomb maker. In addition to the adverts, leaflets are being delivered to around four million homes across the country. The leaflet contains the same garage image and also includes a list of suspicious activities that residents should keep an eye out for. While the threat of a terrorist attack in the United Kingdom remains real and serious the advertising campaign has not been launched in response to any specific threat.

DAC Stuart Osborne, head of the MPS Counter Terrorism Command and Senior National Co-ordinator Counter Terrorism, stressed that any information passed to the Anti-Terrorist Hotline is treated in the strictest of confidence. All information is thoroughly analysed and researched by experienced officers, before, and if any, police action is taken."Experience has shown us that terrorists do live alongside us in our communities. "While they will try and hide what they are doing they can leave tell-tale signs behind and that is where the public can help us by looking out for activity or behaviour which strikes them as suspicious or out of the ordinary."

"We must not become complacent. We all have a responsibility to remain vigilant. I would urge anyone who has any concerns about possible terrorist-related activity to contact police through the Anti-Terrorist Hotline," said DAC Osborne.
