Show Notes

On this week’s episode of the Northeast Newscast, we are speaking with Kevin Boehm, liaison with the Crime Stoppers program. 

We are diving into the Crime Stoppers program, what it is, how it got started, and asking the question: is it truly anonymous? 

Boehm discusses how the program is separate from the police department, how much money has been paid out in reward money, if any tipsters have ever been identified, and goes step-by-step into how exactly the tips are collected, recorded, and how the cash is paid out… without any face-to-face interaction.
