A NATIONAL initiative aiming to break the supply of illicit drugs has arrived in Cockburn.

The City of Cockburn has joined forces with Crime Stoppers and WA Police in the Dob in a Dealer campaign, a six month Australia-wide project that aims to stop the supply of illegal drugs including methylamphetamine, cocaine, MDMA, heroin and cannabis.

City of Cockburn community safety manager Travis Moore said the CoSafe patrol team and WA Police liaised daily in the fight against crime locally.

“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,” he 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, and 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.”
