The new year has seen the NSW Police Force and Crimestoppers once again launch the ‘Dob in a Dealer’ (DIAD) Campaign, aimed at mobilising members of the public in the fight against illicit drugs.
After much success in 2016 and 2017, the campaign will be heavily publicised over the next two months, with community engagement events at held across the state.
Minister for Police Troy Grant said this is a great grassroots initiative to help the community help police in getting these dangerous substances off our streets.
“We understand that people may have reservations for fear of repercussions in reporting this type of activity to police, but please remember that any information you provide will be in confidence.
“There are often some tell-tale signs if a home is being used as a drug house.”
“There are often some tell-tale signs if a home is being used as a drug house, such as lights on at all hours of the day and night, cars and people arriving at odd times, or large drums and other equipment being disposed of at the property.
“This is all about making our communities safer places for residents and their families.
“Any piece of information could help police in their fight against this scourge, so if you know something, say something,” Mr Grant said.
If you think you have information about someone in your community who is manufacturing or supplying drugs, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 for a confidential conversation.
