Innocent lives have been torn apart by gang culture.
Following the fatal shootings of five people in Merseyside in 2022, we have been relentlessly pursuing justice for their families.
During this time, the community has stood strong and stepped forward with vital information.
We want this to continue. With your help, we can protect our communities and prevent organised crime groups from operating.
The strength of Merseyside lies in its communities.
Let’s harness that strength so we can break the cycle of serious and organised crime and make our neighbourhoods safer for generations to come.
How can I help?
We all have an important role to play in helping to keep Merseyside safe from criminal gangs.
We understand it might be difficult coming forward to the police, especially if you are concerned about gun and gang crime or live in an area particularly affected by it.
You can contact the independent charity Crimestoppers, 100% anonymously. They do not ask for a caller’s name or record the call and they do not track IP addresses or locations when information is submitted online.
Merseyside Police is rolling out a multi-agency partnership tactic, known locally as EVOLVE, to rescue and regenerate areas most affected by serious and organised crime. EVOLVE projects are taking place in areas of Wirral, Liverpool, Knowsley and Sefton. Find out more: EVOLVE – Clear, Hold, Build | Merseyside Police.
