A new state-wide campaign aimed at mobilising members of the public in the fight against illicit drugs is underway in Campbelltown City Police Area Command.
The Commonwealth-funded campaign is being launched across NSW following the success of the previous “Dob in a Dealer” campaign, which ran from February 2016 to March 2017, aimed at stopping Australia’s supply of illicit drugs including methylamphetamine (ice), cocaine, MDMA, heroin and cannabis.
The campaign will see police and Crime Stoppers conduct intensive community-engagement activities.
