Tennessee Crime Stoppers installs kiosks to support community outreach

The Clarksville Crime Stoppers in Clarksville, Tennessee, installed the first of five information kiosks to support its outreach to the community, according to a clarksvillenow.com report.

The organization installed the first 6-foot wide, 2-foot high Community Pro-Tektor Kiosk Information System last week at the Transit Center on Legion Street. The screen presents a variety of crime-fighting messages and notifications about criminal suspects.

A QR code on the kiosk allows citizens to access the Crime Stoppers online tip form and report information to police. Tips leading to the arrest of suspects, as well as the recovery of drugs and stolen property, are eligible for cash rewards of up to $1,000.

More kiosks will be installed at the student center on the Austin Peay State University campus, the County Courts Center and at the Walmarts on Fort Campbell Boulevard and Wilma Rudolph Boulevard.

The organization is investing $24,665 in the five kiosks at a cost of about $3,900 each, data charges and a service agreement.
