The programme will show re-constructions of crimes from across the county, CCTV appeals and people currently wanted by police in Lancashire. The show will also highlight some of the day-to-day work that goes on to prevent crime across the county.

“We aim to help solve the kind of everyday crime that often gets ignored by the press but has a devastating impact on its victims,” said Miriam O’Reilly. 

“We hope our reconstructions of crimes will encourage people to come forward with information which will help secure convictions.”

“The Crimewatch Roadshow programme was very popular last year," adds Lancashire Constabulary’s Chief Constable Steve Finnigan "and we were keen to take the opportunity, not only to showcase the hard work that goes on in Lancashire every day, but also to appeal for information about incidents and crimes that we are keen to progress enquires on and that mean the most to communities.

“Despite crime rates continuing to fall and some crimes being at their lowest levels in over 30 years, we are not complacent and we remain committed to keeping our communities safe from harm, and through our local policing teams we will ensure that we remain accessible and in touch with community priorities.”

There will be a number of appeals featured over the two days and anyone who has any information about a crime featured is urged to call the programme on 08000 468999 or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.  The contact number for Lancashire Police is 08451 25 35 45.
