Crime Stoppers has launched a new campaign urging young people who witness acts of violence to stand up and ‘Say Something’.
The ‘Say Something’ campaign encourages 16 to 24 year-olds to report incidents of violence confidentially using its new website,
www.saysomething.org.au or free iPhone app.
Through the website, the campaign underlines the strength of friendships, the importance of young people doing what they can to keep their friends safe and speaking up.
Lord Mayor Robert Doyle and youth ambassadors Dan Gawned and Anna Smyrk encouraged young people to get behind the campaign.
Cr Doyle said taking a stand against violence takes courage and the campaign urges young people to report any violent acts to Crime Stoppers.
“This campaign presents an opportunity for young people to lead the way in tackling this important city safety issue. By reporting violence, young people are sending a clear message that this behaviour is simply not on and is not without consequences,” the Lord Mayor said.
