Calls to dob in drug dealers

27 Feb 2019

Local police and the City of Melbourne on February 14 asked locals to dob in drug dealers.

As part of a Crimestoppers initiative, Insp Craig Peel and Cr Beverley Pinder helped launch a local campaign aimed at disrupting the manufacture and supply of drugs in the city.

After being introduced by Crime Stoppers Victoria representative Caroline Reid, Insp Peel said information provided by the public was highly valued by police.

“Community information is vital to allow us to get a full picture about the manufacturing and selling drugs. The information could be the missing piece that allows us to disrupt these operations, disrupt organised crime,” Insp Peel said.

He said police relied on information from the community every day and anonymous reporting was equally valued.

Cr Pinder said the City of Melbourne fully supported the initiative.

“This event today is to encourage Melburnians to pick up the phone and make a call. Police resources are always very stretched and I think it falls upon us as members of this community to feel a sense of responsibility and support the police,” Cr Pinder said.

Information can be reported on 1800 333 000 or at http://www.crimestoppers.com.au
