Delaware Crime Stoppers, in partnership with Delaware River and Bay Authority, unveiled a new informational kiosk Oct. 3 inside the Cape May-Lewes Ferry terminal in Lewes. It’s the first of many to be placed in areas with good public interaction and in high-crime areas throughout the state, said Crime Stoppers Executive Director Michael Gallagher.
The Crime Stoppers kiosks will display Amber Alerts, wanted fugitive features, arrest posters, law enforcement recruiting information and general details about the Crime Stoppers program. The kiosks will provide guidelines about where residents can go for additional information and QR codes that can be scanned for access to the tip submission form and the Crime Stoppers website. Gallagher said while tips cannot be submitted directly at a kiosk, tip submissions can be completed on cellphones and tablets using the QR codes.
Gallagher said the organization is looking for businesses and organizations to sponsor the kiosks. For more information, contact him at 302-739-5927.
