Brownsville Crime Stoppers will host annual fundraiser luncheon
BROWNSVILLE, TEXAS (KVEO NEWSCENTER 23) — The Brownsville Crime Stoppers will host a fundraiser luncheon tomorrow at the Brownsville Events Center.
The fundraiser is an attempt for the Crime Stoppers to put more cashflow into their tip hotline.
Since the Brownsville Crime Stoppers are a non profit organization, this benefit luncheon is how they obtain money to give to anonymous callers giving tips.
Police department officials say sometimes, the best information comes from anonymous callers.
"A lot of the times, people or the community can get more information than what the detectives or the officers can, and this is a great tool that the uh, the department, or the police departments use as part of an investigation," said Brownsville Police Department public information officer JJ Trevino.
The luncheon will begin at 11:30 a.m. tomorrow and continue until 1 p.m. Everyone from the community is invited.
