I was glad to be able to attend the launch of Crimestoppers Week 2017, which is supported by a wide cross-section of our community. This year Crimestoppers Week is targeting the manufacture, supply and distribution of the illicit drug Ice as well as motor vehicle theft and shoplifting.
Crimestoppers has seen a 12% increase in the number of information reports it has received compared to this time last year, an increase largely due to the introduction of the new online reporting tool.
It was wonderful to see such a wide cross-section of the community supporting this not-for-profit organisation in its efforts to make our communities safer.
I encourage everyone to please report any suspicious behaviour they may see to the online reporting tool at http://www.crimestopperstas.com.au/ or by phone on 1800 333 000.
Reporting is anonymous. They only need your information to solve crime, not your name.
