Tasmanians are encouraged to anonymously report information about illegal drugs entering Tasmania through air and sea gateways as part of this year’s Crime Stoppers Week.
The focus for this year’s Crime Stoppers Week, which runs from 31 May to 6 June, is to reduce the opportunity for drugs to cause harm in our community by reporting those who import and deal drugs.
Most drugs in Tasmania are imported, and identifying those who are responsible for bringing drugs into the State through our air and sea gateways can help police tackle the supply of drugs.
For more than 25 years Crime Stoppers has operated in Tasmania, providing an important anonymous avenue that people can use to help solve crime and identify offenders.
Crime Stoppers is particularly targeted for people who might not feel comfortable giving their name or going directly to police to report illegal activity.
The Tasmanian Government is committed to keeping Tasmanians safe and is encouraging anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at crimestopperstas.com.au
