The campaign is a nation-wide program funded by the Federal Government to stop Australia’s supply chain of illicit drugs, including methylamphetamine (ice), cocaine, MDMA, heroin and cannabis.

Dob in a Dealer aims to increase information reports from the Australian public to Crime Stoppers and the police regarding people suspected of supplying or dealing in drugs.

During the last Dob in a Dealer campaign in 2016, Crime Stoppers received an average increase of 95 per cent in drug-related information reports from members of the public.

Minister for Police and Emergency Services Mick Gentleman said the Dob in a Dealer campaign is a valuable opportunity for Canberrans to provide information that could help shut down dealers of illicit and illegal drugs.

“The ACT Government remains committed to tackling the scourge of drugs in our community – that’s why we are working with ACT Policing and Crime Stoppers to ensure our city and our region are safe from the supply and manufacture of illicit drugs,” Minister Gentleman said.

“Drug dealers and suppliers sell misery and despair. They also make our communities unsafe.

“I encourage all Canberrans to care for your community and Dob in a Dealer.”

ACT Deputy Chief Police Officer Mark Walters said that Dob in a Dealer assisted the work ACT Policing is doing in targeting and disrupting the distribution and trafficking of illicit drugs.

“Initiatives like Dob in a Dealer have the ability to make a real difference in the ACT community and surrounding region by encouraging the public to help disrupt the drug dealing supply chain,” Commander Walters said.

“Any piece of information, big or small, relating to the manufacture and distribution of drugs can be relevant to police. That small piece of information could be the missing piece of a much bigger puzzle.”

Chair of ACT Region Crime Stoppers, Diana Forrester also encouraged members of the public to do their part and Dob in a Dealer.

“Crime Stoppers ACT is a safe and trusted link between police and the community – and callers remain anonymous. If you see any suspicious drug-related activity, make the call and help cut the supply of drugs in our community.” Forrester said.

If you have information about someone in your community who is manufacturing or supplying drugs, call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report securely via the ACT Region Crime Stoppers website. Please quote reference Dob in a Dealer. Information can be provided anonymously.
