Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers received a $5,000 donation from two Tri-City businesses to continue their effort to fight crime.
HAPO Community Credit Union and Windermere Tri-Cities provided the donation through the Community Enrichment Foundation.
Ken Williams, president for Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers, said the donation "helps Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers continue its work with local law enforcement in helping to make the Tri-Cities and surrounding area an even safer place to live, work and play."
Crime Stoppers has been helping law enforcement agencies in Benton and Franklin counties since 1985.
In that time, tips have resulted in 5,093 arrests, 5,986 cleared cases, almost $2 million in recovered property and drugs, and paid out $70,000 in rewards.
Tipsters have helped officers apprehend homicide suspects, car prowlers and everything in between, officials said.
Tri-Cities Crime Stoppers pay a cash reward of up to $1,000 for information that results in a felony arrest.
