Goulburn Police launch their inaugural ‘dob in a drug dealer day’

Goulburn Police have launched a campaign encouraging the public to ‘dob in a drug dealer’ by calling Crime Stoppers.

The local operation, being run for one day on Tuesday 25 March 2014, is part of a police crackdown on drug supply. The community will have the opportunity to speak to a police officer between 7am and 7pm on this day.

Detective A/Inspector Matt Woods from Goulburn Local Area Command said it is important to speak up if you know something about drug supply in your local area.

“On Tuesday 25 March 2014, the community is urged to contact Goulburn Police on 4824 0737 if they have information about the supply or growing of drugs.

“This day has been formed to make it a priority for those in the community who know something, to say something. Now is the time.

“Police are committed to taking drugs off our streets. If you have information that can help please call Goulburn Police on 4824 0737 or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information supplied will be treated with the strictest of confidence and callers are able to remain anonymous if they wish,” he said.

“Drugs in our community have a devastating effect on the community and are predominately linked to serious and violent crimes in the area.

“There is no acceptable use of drugs – the message is clear, we all play a part in relation to the observations of those engaged in drug supply – any information is considered important to our investigations.

“Do your bit to stop drug dealing in our town on Tuesday 25 March 2014,” Detective A/Inspector Woods said.
