Local law enforcement agencies are renewing their efforts to resolve unsolved crimes with the help of Crimeline.

The Lubbock Police, Lubbock County Sheriff’s Office, and Lubbock ISD Police held a joint press conference to announce increased rewards for Crimeline tips.

The increased reward money for tips to Crimeline was donated thanks to some anonymous families in Lubbock.

The Sheriff’s Office will also have a Crime of the Week beginning on Monday, February 25th to help solve crimes in the county from cold case murders to aggravated assault or robberies.

There will also be a new program to highlight the top ten most wanted in Lubbock. The most dangerous of the fugitives will be sought out first by law enforcement officials.

“Over the years, Crimeline has been very helpful with law enforcement and the criminal justice system in helping us to apprehend suspects wanted on criminal activity,” Lubbock Police Chief Ellis.

“The reward structure for Crimeline has not been updated in quite awhile and we felt this was a good way to campaign for Crimeline to help us go after these bad guys.”
