From staff reports
The Winston County Crime Stoppers met with the Retired Education Personnel of MS on March 6 at City Hall. Speakers were Tom Bush, President of the Winston County Crime Stoppers and Keith Alexander, Chief Deputy of Winston County.
Both speakers talked about that they received numerous calls daily. Crime Stoppers provides a method of involving citizens to help solve crimes.
Citizens with knowledge relating to a specific crime are encouraged to call Crime Stoppers. Both speakers reminded the REPM that callers remain anonymous if they so desire.
The speakers stated that they really appreciated that help that they received from the public. Both speakers stated that “when a tip is called in, the Crime Stoppers Call Center will assign the caller a tip identification number.” “You must have this identification number to receive information about your tip. The Crime Stoppers Call Center will provide you a telephone number along with information for times to call for updates.
Speakers also reminded the group that there were cash rewards for tips that led to arrests. The Winston County Crime Stopper number is 662-773-9999.
