ATCM partners with Crimestoppers to fight crime across the UK

The Association of Town & City Management has joined forces with crime-fighting charity Crimestoppers as part of its efforts to help crack down on crime and anti-social behaviour in town centres.

The partnership is of particular significance as Crimestoppers, which enables members of the public to pass on information about crime anonymously, is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

ATCM runs the Purple Flag Accreditation Scheme which recognises excellence in the management of town and city centres at night. Since its launch in 2003, 42 towns and cities in the UK and Ireland have been awarded Purple Flags and the organisation now aims to have 50 accredited centres by the end of 2013. 

Rodger Holden, director of business development at Crimestoppers, said: “The charity’s vision states that people and their communities have the right to live without crime and without the fear of crime.

“Through partnering with the Association of Town and City Management we’re better able to realise this vision as we work in collaboration to make the UK’s town centres safer for residents and visitors alike.”

Martin Blackwell, ATCM chief executive, added: “This is an exciting opportunity to work with Crimestoppers, whose 25 years’ experience in fighting crime will no doubt strengthen our efforts to make our town and city centres safer.

“Almost 90% of the UK population live and work in towns and cities and almost everyone depends on them for access to shopping, entertainment, leisure, culture, public services and transportation, so it is essential that action is taken to ensure their experiences are positive.”
