Sunday saw the end of another successfulNational Crime Stoppers Week.

The week wasaimed at removing illicit drugs from Tasmanian streets and improving community safety.

Crime Stoppers Tasmania general manager Ron Franks said more than half the calls made anonymously to the service last week were drug-related.

“Throughout the week we have received twice our normal call volume, demonstrating that Tasmanians continue to participate in removing illicit drugs from our streets and helping to abate criminal behaviour,” he said.

Mr Franks said much of the information received was still to be processed, but Crime Stoppers’ track record in helping to crackbig police cases was well-documented.

He said the service was“theanonymous connection between the community and police”.

“Working together we can break that cycle and make our homes and communities safer places to live,” Mr Franks said.

Anyone with information that could assist a police investigation is urged to contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 1800 333 000.
