Taking Action Against Crime Special
NewsChannel 3 is celebrating four years of partnering with Hampton Roads Crime Line to get fugitives off the streets. And we’re getting results! WTKR’s stories have helped get more than 170 fugitives off the streets!
Each week, WTKR tells a story about a suspect who is on the run. This helps our local law enforcement with some of their tougher cases and inspires the community to take action to help by calling the Crime Line.
But, it’s much more than that … WTKR’s stories raise awareness for the Hampton Roads Crime Line programs. By doing stories and participating in fundraisers, WTKR has shown the community that without volunteers and donations this program would not be able to continue. And perhaps, most importantly, Taking Action Against Crime gives a voice to victims as they fight for justice. This special highlights several cases from NewsChannel3’s series.
