Websites helping Texas law enforcement

Amarillo,TX - Amarillo may be ahead of the game when it comes to technology helping law enforcement.

Law enforcement agencies in our area say they have been using the Crime Stoppers website since 2009.

Cpl. Sean Slover with Amarillo Crime Stoppers claims their website works best for our area. "We not only represent the PD but we have 24 volunteers that I answer to, I've got 24 other bosses. So people just like you, they worry about their community, they care about their community, and this is way they get involved . . . so you know it is very community based organization."

The website links law enforcement agencies in all of Potter and Randall County. Potter County Sheriff Brian Thomas, says the program works great for them and they don't plan on using another website.

"Crime Stoppers has been around for years and the population of Potter and Randall County .. . they know that and they know they can go and check it. And so you don't want to confuse it by adding another website. It is easier to stick with something we has been tested and is true ... And it is good for us."

Slover says he expects their website to grow as times goes on and anticipates more law enforcement agencies to use online website. "It has no choice but to, you know we are in the digital age so the website is very important for us to both receive phone calls and web tips".
