Volunteers help to tackle crime

NEARLY $600 million worth of drugs have been discovered since the inception of Crime Stoppers in Australia two decades ago, and 21 murders have been solved.

And with Queenslanders calling into the anonymous crime reporting hotline more than any other state, there is more to come - at least, Warwick chairman Cameron Schoenfisch hopes so.

Crime Stoppers hosted a breakfast at the Warwick RSL yesterday to promote its work and seek out sponsorship to continue assisting police in solving crimes.

Mr Schoenfisch called on the 120 diners to report crimes and offer sponsorship to the volunteer-run organisation.

He asked people to consider what it would mean to them if someone in their family was hurt by crime.

"I would like to think people would pick up the phone if they knew something," he said.

 

If you would like to volunteer, sponsor or even just offer some fence space for Crime Stoppers signs, phone 1800 333 000 or go to qld.crimestoppers.com. au.
