Community information is vital to help stemming the flow of drugs across the country and the Dob in a Dealer campaign is one of the initiatives backed by the Federal Government in a multi-pronged approach to addressing drug manufacture and use.

If you have information about someone who is manufacturing or dealing drugs call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestoppers.com.au.
