Amarillo Crime Stoppers host annual meeting

Amarillo Crime Stoppers hosted a meeting Saturday afternoon for local residents to find out how the program was doing.

The annual meeting was held at the Amarillo Civic Center and was open to the public.

â??Itâ??s always a big deal because we get all of our stats out there to everybody,â?? said Corporal Sean Slover, the Police Coordinator with the Amarillo Crime Stoppers.

2012 was a breaking year for their program receiving over 1,600 tips said Cpl. Slover. Out of the 50 advertised Fugitives of the Week in that time frame, all but two were captured.

â??If it werenâ??t for the publicâ??s knowledge or someoneâ??s brother, sister, next door neighbor knowing that this person committed a crime, a lot of our crimes would go unsolved,â?? said Cpl. Slover.
