Several workshops were set up to educate and train individuals on utilizing Crime Stoppers in the area using social media for better communication and becoming more familiar with police duties. It was also to strengthen partnerships amongst the agencies. DPS State Trooper Johnny Hernandez stated, "We know we can back each other up. We know they are our brother and they know that they are going to be there for us and they know we're going to be there for them. Unity works long ways."
