LOCALS NEEDED TO SEND DEALERS TO THE COOLER
Member for Tamworth Kevin Anderson has welcomed the latest move in the fight against illegal drugs in our region with the local launch of the dob-in-a-dealer campaign targeting the supply and manufacture of ice.
The campaign was launched yesterday by local police and NSW Crime Stoppers and Mr Anderson said it dovetails with the work being done by the local Ice Action Group where at every meeting the issue of education, rehabilitation and support are discussed which includes supporting our police.
“Whilst Australians don’t like “dobbers” this is one of those times where we have to put that aside and take action to rid our community of this insidious drug.
“It’s not ok anymore to sit back and think someone else will look after it. That attitude is a thing of the past.
“We live in a dramatically different world to what we used to and that means police now more than ever need the community to stand up and say it’s not ok to make or supply illegal drugs and to take action by reporting it.
“Ice knows no boundaries and its effects rip families apart and destroy lives. It could be a sibling, friend, parent or colleague – rich or poor – no one is safe from its far reaching and devastating impact.
“Now is the time to end the spread of ice. I won’t stand for it, the community won’t stand for it and the police won’t stand for it.
“If you see something, say something and call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000,” Mr Anderson concluded.
