Crimestoppers are to use the shocking images of a heroin addict showing how dreadful physical effects of the drugs to underline their anti-drugs message.
Last year, more than 100 of the 306 calls made to the anonymous crimeline were tip-offs about drugs.
Figures released today also reveal that one in five of all calls during 2005 led to an arrest.
Steven Hunt, the chairman of the Jersey Crimestoppers Board, said that the quality of calls had been very good.
He said: ‘In 2005, our arrests were up 63 per cent, compared with a national figure that was 5 per cent down, and our actionable calls were 43 per cent up, compared with a national figure of 2.8 per cent up.
‘In addition to taking calls which have led to drug seizures, we have taken calls in respect of other serious crimes proving that the public are using the anonymous means of communication to remove criminals.’ He added: ‘We shall next be running a dramatic advertisement aimed at getting the public to call us regarding drug dealers.’ Of all the calls received in 2005, 35 per cent were for drugs, 28 per cent were for offences such as vandalism, four per cent were for drink-driving, and three per cent were for indecency.
