Partnership will crack down on environmental crime
Crime Stoppers SA and the state Department for Environment and Water have teamed up to make it easier to report environmental crimes such as dumping rubbish, clearing native vegetation and fishing in marine parks.
Anyone who visits the Crime Stoppers website will now be asked whether they want to report information about a police matter or an environmental matter.
Tip-offs will then be forwarded either to SA Police or to the department.
A similar initiative in Western Australia led to a significant increase in the reporting of environmental crimes, according to Climate, Environment and Water Minister Susan Close and Police and Emergency Services Minister Joe Szakacs.
“Whether it’s illegally dumping rubbish or some sort of wilful damage to trees and other habitat, the message is now clear that people will be watching and will be able to report this behaviour through these new tools,” Mr Szakacs said.
