Pssst, this works

Happy 25th anniversary to Crime Stoppers:

A quarter century of answering the phone has netted more than 29,000 crime tips, helping lead to more than 8,000 arrests.

Those tips were a factor in more than 9,000 solved crimes, including 68 homicides.

Pretty impressive numbers. Police can't always get as much cooperation as they need when people have to be identified as the source. Even when there isn't a fear of retaliation, there can be strong feelings against being a "snitch." If anonymio

I can't even count all the times I emailed tips in...and I have never pursued any reward...I'm just glad tio be able to do it.

It's not snitching...it's just "forwarding good intel"

Here's to another "25"...!
