Oneida City Police Joins Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers
The Oneida City Police Department is now a member of Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers. On Thursday, the Oneida City Police PBA made a $500 donation to the community run program which enlists the help of local concerned citizens, to provide authorities with 100-percent anonymous information about criminal activity.
The program is community based and provides a path for concerned citizens to report anonymous tips associated with local criminal activity. Upon an arrest, the anonymous tipster could receive a cash reward.
"We'd like to thank the Oneida City PBA," said MVCS Chairman, Ed Schmidt. "This program is a very helpful tool for police as they work to keep our neighborhoods safe. The completely confidential tips we receive continue to assist law enforcement in bringing criminals to justice."
Have a tip or information? Contact the Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers confidential and secure tip line at 1-866-730-8477 (TIPS), or visit the website at www.mohawkvalleycrimestoppers.com.
The information will be provided to the appropriate law enforcement agency.
