The City of Cockburn has joined Crime Stoppers WA and WA Police to get behind the national Dob in a Dealer campaign.
The six-month Commonwealth Government-funded campaign aims to stop Australia’s supply chain of illicit drugs including methylamphetamine (ice), cocaine, MDMA, heroin and cannabis, through police intervention of criminals and organised crime gangs responsible for the manufacture and supply of these drugs.
In WA, the campaign is supported by the Together We Can Tribe whose ambassadors, sporting siblings Sam and Daniel Kerr, are providing education through sport and arts about the damage drugs do in our community.
City of Cockburn Community Safety Manager Travis Moore said the City’s CoSafe patrol team was in daily contact with WA Police in the local fight against crime.
“We advocate our residents contact Crime Stoppers to report people suspected of dealing or supplying illicit drugs because it is a safe and secure way to share information about drug activity to police,” Mr Moore said.
“Crime Stoppers takes measures to ensure the anonymity of people making reports.
“No called ID appears on the call centre telephones and calls are never recorded. If making an online report, Crime Stoppers does not have access to personal data because the IP address, details of the computer being used or your location is never recorded.
“Submitted reports pass through a minimum of three different global servers, each providing a separate layer of encryption before a report reaches its destination.
“What is being transmitted cannot be intercepted, modified or read and the source of the document received cannot be backtracked.”
