Time to Stop


Time to Stop is the message that Norfolk and Suffolk Police are promoting as part of a joint campaign to prevent and reduce rape and sexual violence in our counties.

The public awareness campaign aims to educate, inform and reassure, to ensure people are armed with knowledge that can help protect them, their friends or their family from becoming a victim, or to know to where to go for help if they have been a victim.
