Roaming for 20 most wanted
THE launch of a nationwide police campaign to promote the exchange of information regarding wanted people across the country will be announced today.
The focus of Operation Roam 2015 is to seek information about a number of alleged offenders who may have left their state or territory and are now residing interstate.
Police will use social media platforms, including Facebook and Twitter, in their search for information.
During the same operation last year, two people were arrested just four days after Crime Stoppers released a list of its top 18 most wanted people in the country.
This year, Crime Stoppers have compiled a list of 20 people wanted by policing jurisdictions across Australia.
Operation Roam was first launched in 2011 and follows the international success of Operation INFRA Red, in which Crime Stoppers and police in Australia and around the world coordinated a global fugitive hunt.
The campaign will run from today until August 28. To contact Crime Stoppers, phone 1800 333 000 or visit www.CrimeStoppers.com.au.
