What’s Crimebeat?

Crimebeat was started in 1992 by the High Sheriff of Derbyshire. Now it’s become a national charity which helps young people develop projects which make their communities a safer place to live.

The historic office of the High Sheriff is one of the most ancient in the country. Sheriffs have been appointed by the Monarch for each shire or county as the sovereign’s representative for all matters relating to the judiciary for over 1,000 years. Even after all this time most people still can’t spell Sheriff properly! For more info on the office of High Sheriff visit www.highsheriffs.com

There are two High Sheriffs in North Wales

The High Sheriff of Gwynedd is Prof. Sian Hope OBE

The High Sheriff of Clwyd is Mrs. Charlotte Howard

  • Cut local crime and keep young people pout of trouble
  • Provide support to victims of crime
  • Stimulate an interest in voluntary work
