Appeal for help in tackling drug crime

The Banbridge branch of the Progressive Unionist Party has issued an appeal for members of the community to contact them or the police about drug dealers.

The branch cited a recent publicity campaign which asked people to report dealers to the independent Crimestoppers charity with the tag line: “The dogs in the street know the dealers but they can’t report them. YOU can.”

The party pointed out: “It’s our community. It’s your community.”

They asked anyone with information to contact them or call Crimestoppers on 0811 555 111.
