April's Community Partner: 88-CRIME
Susie Slagle Dupnik and her colleague Shelly, talk to The Morning MIX about April's Community Partner: 88-CRIME.
88-CRIME Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime. This is done by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy.
88-CRIME Crime Stoppers provides several methods of anonymously submitting a tip which includes a telephone number, Web Tips and text messaging to encourage citizens in the community to give vital information that can be helpful to law enforcement in fighting crime.
Tipsters are always anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender.
88-CRIME Crime Stoppers relies on volunteers serving on a Board of Directors and also from tax deductible contributions donated by the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
