Viewpoint: CrimeStoppers Street Sweep

The WALB CrimeStoppers Street Sweep resulted in dozens of tips on South Georgia fugitives.

Officers from several law enforcement agencies and CrimeStoppers volunteers manned the phones Monday night as viewers called in information.

Tips came in on 20 of the 25 fugitives featured.

One of the fugitives was arrested while we were on the air and law officers are now on the streets tracking down the others using information our viewers provided.

We are grateful for all the tips and the participation WALB viewers.

You are helping make our streets safer.
