OXLEY and Barwon commands have launched another social media assault to try and trace a number of offenders wanted by police.
The online blitz is aiming to get the public on board to try and find the men and women who have outstanding warrants for their arrest.
Four names have been added to the list in the Tamworth and Gunnedah areas, while five names stand in Barwon’s most wanted.
The campaigns have had success in the past for Barwon Local Area Command, with a number of persons returned to prison to serve out sentences or put before the courts, charged with fresh offences.
Oxley crime co-ordinator Acting Sergeant Tracey Freeman said using the official command’s Facebook page will mean the message can be shared around, ensuring the local community is the eyes and ears of police.
“We’ve had quite a good number of leads when it comes to information on people,” she said.
“We’re able to monitor what is said and get information out there as well as getting people to contact us.”
The commands’ wanted list details the person’s name, age, description and the nature of the offences they are wanted for.
Acting Sergeant Freeman said they’re urging people to come forward with information on any of the men and women listed.
“We don’t recommend anyone in the community approach these people and let them know they are wanted, rather just ring police,” she said. “Even getting a registration number of a car they were in, or where they were headed, even little things like that. It can all help.
“If we have some information to follow up then that can help us.”
Anyone with information on the whereabouts of any of the men and women should contact local police or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
