One of law enforcement’s most important crime-fighting tools isn’t a fancy gadget or computer often glamorized on television crime shows.
It’s you. Information provided by the public – even seemingly “small” tips – regularly help lawmen crack cases or locate suspects in hiding. As useful as fingerprints and DNA can be to an investigation, it may still take a phone call from a concerned citizen to help investigators tie all the pieces together.The community can be an extra set of eyes and ears before officers arrive on scene and even after they leave. Sometimes a simple observation or even something overheard in neighborhood gossip can be the final piece needed to identify and arrest criminals.
DNA not always the answer for unsolved murders.
