MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Crimestoppers, an organization that works to put criminals behind bars, held its annual luncheon Wednesday where it honored police officers who help make it all happen.
During the annual celebration four officers were giving awards for their heroic actions.
The officers who were awarded include:
Conway was the first deputy on the scene of the ambulance accident involving MPD officer David Brown. He helped pull people out of what he thought was a burning ambulance.
Crimestoppers President Bob Bostic said he was amazed at the program's success, and how communities come together to track down wanted suspects.
"Some of the reports we've been hearing and seeing over the last 14 years, it's staggering the criminals that have been caught..." Bostic said, "simply because somebody remembered that phrase 215-STOP or Crimestoppers."
WSFA 12 News features a new Crimestoppers segment each day during the noon newscast. An extended Crimestoppers report is also featured each Monday night at 6:00.
All the money that tipsters receive for their information comes from donations and grants.
