New South Wales Police have taken to social media to try to track down 20 of our most-wanted fugitives - and just over 24 hours after the campaign's launch, eight of the alleged offenders are already in custody.
Named 'Operation Roam', the joint initiative between the police and Crime Stoppers has seen the community more involved in the process of tracking down suspects of crimes who may have moved interstate.
This has involved a circulation of images on Facebook and Twitter, with people urged to look at the photos on rogueradar.com.au in case they recognise anyone.
“These criminals could be working alongside you in your community,” Crime Stoppers chairman Trevor O’Hara said in a statement yesterday.
“It might be a new person you’ve noticed in your area or a more familiar face such as a neighbour, work colleague, friend or even a family member.”
A reward of up to $1000 is also being offered for leads which result in the arrest of these wanted persons.
