Virginia Beach, Va. - Crime Stoppers USA presented a media award to NewsChannel 3 and the Virginia Beach Crime Solvers earlier this month at the organization's national convention.

The award is for best television crime of the week, which we won for our taking action against crime program.

The Virginia Beach Crime Solvers accepted the award at the convention and police presented it to us today!

This award highlights the partnership between NewsChannel 3 and the Virginia Beach Crime Solvers.

We're getting results with all the programs that make up the Hampton Roads Crime Line.

In the past five years, we've helped police catch more than 185 fugitives thanks to Taking Action Against Crime.
