VIGO COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - You see it every Thursday night on WTHI, a joint effort between News 10 and the Vigo County Sheriff's Department.
It's a campaign to find people wanted for crimes.
But what you might not know is how successful this campaign is.
"What we found out, as time goes on, it's been on the television, it's been on the website, so as time goes on, we have people that are actually looking for these people and they're calling in,” said Sheriff Greg Ewing, Vigo County Sheriff’s Department.
Every suspect featured in the Crime Stoppers campaign so far this year was arrested.
Authorities say they normally make all the arrests within 6 months of their request for help.
"Although, it may not happen that night, it may not happen that next day, within a few weeks, several weeks, up to a month, usually those people will have tips called in on them that ultimately lead to their arrest,” said Sheriff Ewing.
But, they couldn't do it without you.
"We have to rely on the citizens to help us. And that's exactly what this does. It gives them that avenue to help law enforcement,” said Sheriff Ewing.
It's a partnership with the community.
Tips from News 10 viewers help with these arrests.
"We need all the eyes and ears out there that we can because obviously we don't have a lot of people, a lot of officers to watch everything all the time,” said Sheriff Ewing.
The Crime stoppers’ number is 812-238-STOP.
