Message from Sam...
  Ask Sam

Crime can affect anyone – we might be the victim of a crime or maybe we have committed crimes ourselves. I’d be really interested in hearing from people who have experienced crime in one way or another.

I read every letter, but I can only respond to a few. I can’t respond to personal email addresses or phone numbers so please don’t include those.

Take care,
Sam
