CCTV helps detectives solve crime on a daily basis.

But it's all very well being able to see 'who done it', but then comes the job of putting the names to the faces.

And that's where you can help.

We have pictures of suspected criminals 'caught in the act' and we'd like you to take a look to see if you can give them names.

If you can, call Crimestoppers on freephone
0800 555 111, quoting the universal reference number on the picture and give them any information you have.

If your information leads to an arrest, you may be eligible for a reward of between £50 and £500.

Detective Sergeant Dave Sismey of Derbyshire police said: "Crimestoppers really does work in Derbyshire.

"In the first six months of this year, there were 573 call from the public leading to a long string of arrests - 19 for drugs offences including supply, four each for for drink driving, burglary and robbery and many more.

"In all, £16,820 of drugs were recovered and 17 burglary offences detected.

"Around 10% of calls result in an arrest, so it's definitely worth picking the phone up."

But the police are also keen to remind you that Crimestoppers is not a substitute for dialling 999.

The organisation is not staffed by paid officers and so cannot send an officer out in an emergency.

If you spot a crime being committed or need an officer in a hurry for a genuine emergency, the advice is don't hesitate to dial 999.
