NSW Police have welcomed the creation of amobile version of the popular Crime Stoppersweb site.Today, Crime Stoppers in Australia is launching amobile version of its tip submit web site
www.crimestoppers.com.auOperational Communication Assistant Commis-sioner Peter Barrie said information from thepublic was one of the greatest weapons policehad to fight crime.
“The smart phone and the tablet have become a
part of our lives in a short time.
“The mobile site will give the public an additional
means to report crime that will work alongsidethe more traditional communications mediums.
“The mobile site is a secure, simple way for the
public to tell us what they know.
“It is a great way for people to send us a message
and support it with a picture
Peter Price OAM, CEO of Crime Stoppers said,
“we have seen explosive growth in tips submitted
by the public online: 100% in the last 12 monthsalone. And not only in Australia.This, coupled with the growth in smart phonesand tablet mobile computers has led us topioneer a platform that is a mobile version of ourcurrent encrypted web site, so the public can use
simple drop down menus, a simple “point andfinger click”.
Crime Stoppers helps solve a crime every14 minutes somewhere in the world, thanks to avigilant community
now maybe we can hope-fully reduce that time to 10 minutes, by increasingthe speed and ease of getting the informationfrom the public to police.
“There is a wealth of untapped communityinformation out there, at the moment we don’tfully know what they, ‘the community’ know”, we
need the eyes and ears of the community, to
make Australia a safer place.”
Price continued, “You, the community are your
own first line of defence and your best weapon isthe phone or computer, see something, hearsomething then click something and let us know."Regardless of the way you contact authoritiesplease advise any anti social behaviour orsuspicious activity in your neighbourhood.

To the editor...
There has been a spate of persons, sofar unknown, deliberately opening gatesaround town, usually after dark, which al-lows stock to stray onto local roads.This practice is either simply mischievous orout of spite.For whatever reason, the likelihood of aserious car accident is highly probable withdamage to the car, possible personal injuryto say nothing of injury to the animals.Recently a gate was opened in Icely Streetallowing a mare and foal to escape. It ismuch appreciated that somebody knockedon the door of the residence, not staying tobe thanked, as a resultof this thoughtfulgesture, the animals were thus quicklyreturned to the paddock.Yours sincerelyBill Barwood, Canowindra
