Nottinghamshire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping has welcomed the new face in the fight against crime to the Crimestoppers Committee.
Bruce Cameron, a retired Nottinghamshire Police Superintendent, has been appointed as the new chairman of the committee
Having served in the force for more than 31 years, Mr Cameron brings a wealth of experience to the role.
His role will see him leading Crimestoppers in work to promote community safety alongside a range of organisations, including the Police, Nottinghamshire County Council, the PCCs and local community safety partnerships throughout Notts.
Former chairman, Coun Glynn Gilfoyle, said: “I’m delighted Bruce has agreed to bring his wealth of experience in tackling crime in Nottinghamshire to Crimestoppers, he will be a tremendous asset.
“Around 20 people are arrested and charged everyday as a result of information provided to Crimestoppers, which demonstrates what a vital role it plays in the fight against crime in Nottinghamshire.
“It has been my privilege to serve Crimestoppers for the last four years as Nottinghamshire chairman.”
Mr Cameron will be promoting Crime Matters in his new role, which is a national initiative to help cut crime.
He said: “Crimestoppers gives the public the opportunity to anonymously provide information on criminal activity in their area.
“Information is key to solving any crime, which is why Crimestoppers is so highly valued by the police, partners concerned with community safety and the communities they serve.”
