  • More than 1100 intelligence reports were generated, and 958 actions issued for investigation;
  • 6000 people went to our website and generated more than 26,000 page views;
  • 2 clandestine drug labs were shut down, and nearly 43g of meth-amphetamine located;
  • 11 firearms seized, along with a small arsenal of other dangerous weapons and accessories;
  • 73 people were apprehended, including 37 charged for offences such as trafficking a controlled drug, firearm offences, and cultivating commercial quantities of cannabis; and

We also paid out several rewards to people who asked for them as a result of providing information that delivered great results.

What you tell us continues to make a difference. If you have any information about criminals and illegal activity, then call the hotline on 1800 333 000 or go to crimestopperssa.com.au
