Crime Stoppers SA has launched an end of financial year donation campaign, with the goal of raising $20,000 to combat crime in regional and remote communities across the state.
The new program will focus heavily on farm crime and thefts, and will look to identify recidivists through their channels.
The organisation is calling on businesses and individuals to contribute to its fundraising target, with CEO Nigel Smart asking locals to dig deep for the sake of their communities.
“A donation to Crime Stoppers will help us to deliver a statewide campaign to help fight country crime,” Mr Smart said.
“We believe that a regional and rural campaign is of critical importance to every South Australian, whether they live or work in a country area or not. We know some regional and farming communities are already doing it tough, and becoming a victim of crime or having crime occur in these tight-knit communities has a major impact on public confidence.”
