If you are worried about a firearm the following options are open to you:
Crimestoppers is an independent charity helping to find criminals and help solve crimes.
Although some people think that airguns are not regulated, in reality there are a lot of controls over possession and use of these potentially dangerous weapons. If you are worried about incidents in your area, you can report these to the authorities, anonymously if you wish. There are several ways you can do this.
They have a confidential phone number, 0800 555 111, that people can call to pass on information about crime; alternatively people can send information anonymously via Crimestoppers. Callers don't have to give their name or any personal information and calls cannot be traced.
"Tell us what you know, not who you are."
You can contact your local police firearms licensing department to report any incident in your area. In an emergency situation, dial 999.
