WA Police, in partnership with Neighbourhood Watch and Crimestoppers have produced notepads for reporting suspicious behaviour/activity to Crimestoppers. You simply fill out the top and bottom pages with all the information you have, then scan the pages and email them to firstname.lastname@example.org
Alternatively, you can take the notepad into a Shire Library and they will scan and email it to Crimestoppers free of charge.
Crimestoppers receives anonymous information about crime and allocates it to the most appropriate Police group to respond to it or use it to assist with investigations. It is not expected that callers put themselves at risk to obtain such details. These notepads are available from the Shire Administration Building and all Shire Libraries.
