Police Make 100 Arrests from Crimestoppers Tips
Thanks to many of you who have helped solve dozens of crimes, Springfield police say the Crimestoppers program is working. More than 800 tipsters called into the program in 2012.
As a direct result of those tips, police made more than 100 arrests. More than $18,000 in reward money was approved by the board of directors, $13,000 of which has been collected. Police said this is a step in the right direction.
"It's just going to show that the program is really working," one officer said. "The community is really getting used to calling Crimestoppers about information that they have about crime."
If you have any information about an unsolved crime, you can call your anonymous tip into Crimestoppers at 217-788-8427. Remember, police want your information, not your name. You could earn up to a $1,000 reward.
