Drug dealers targeted in Crime Stoppers ice campaign
Members of the public are being encouraged to play a key part in a new national Crime Stoppers campaign aimed at reducing the availability of illegal drugs and putting drug dealers behind bars.
The WA part of the national ‘Dob in a Dealer’ campaign will run in partnership with the WA Police in drug hotspots around the State during the next few months.
Members of the community hold the key to cleaning up drug activity in their area by observing and reporting what they see, especially near where they live, work or travel. This initiative empowers everyone to telephone their concerns anonymously to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestopperswa.com.au.
