Torrens Transit renews partnership with Crime Stoppers SA

Torrens Transit is extending its link with Crime Stoppers SA to keep the local community safe

South Australian operator Torrens Transit has renewed a partnership with Crime Stoppers in the state.

The partnership over the past three years has seen the Crime Stoppers SA logo and contact details appearing on more than 800 buses operating in the Adelaide public transport network.

Torrens Transit managing director Andrew Jenkinson says the ongoing partnership has proven valuable to both the community and team members.

“Our hope for our partnership with Crime Stoppers was to raise awareness among passengers about how they can help create a safer community,” Jenkinson says.

“We are proud of the partnership and believe it has actively contributed to the ongoing safety of our community and public transport network by both discouraging antisocial behaviour and by encouraging community members to be aware and share any relevant insights they have.

“Any crime solved with information from the public is a win for the community.”

Jenkinson says the initiative demonstrates Torrens Transit’s commitment to a safer workplace for drivers.

“Representing more than 1300 drivers, we are committed to providing a safe workplace and we believe that by partnering with Crime Stoppers, we are actively working together to ensure a safer environment for all, not just on public transport, but in the broader community,” he says.

Crime Stoppers South Australia CEO Nigel Smart says an average of 25 crimes are solved each and every week by police in South Australia thanks to information from the community.

“Crime Stoppers provides everyone opportunity to anonymously share information about unsolved crimes and suspicious activity – with research showing that 81 per cent of Australians believe the option to remain anonymous is incredibly important,” Smart says.

If you see a crime occurring or need urgent police assistance, always call 000. You can also ring Policelink for non-urgent Police assistance on 131444.
