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.
Never miss a local story.
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.
