Delmarva Law Enforcement Push Crime Solvers Awareness

Crime Solvers Eastern Shore
SALISBURY, Md.- Get the bad guys off the streets and keep our communities safe; that's the mission of Crime Solvers.
If you happen to be traveling around Salisbury or anywhere in Delmarva, you may have seen the yellow stickers on the doors of various gas station marts, delis, sandwich shops and hotels. 
"I've got plenty of them," said Lieutenant Tim Robinson with the Wicomico County Sheriff's Office on Wednesday.
Robinson said he is making sure the Crime Solvers stickers are seen by everyone whom he hopes will help police catch criminals.
"We are trying to do what we can to get it out in the communities so that everybody knows about it and so every where they go they see Crime Solvers," Robinson said.
Robinson appeared on Tuesday's Delmarva Life program on WBOC where he talked about the program and showed some pictures of their most wanted.
Shortly after our show, Robinson's tip lines lit up with viewers calling to help track down one of the fugitives.
The lieutenant said Crime Solvers has been around for 25 years but he's still concerned that there are some in the community who are not aware of the program which seems to be a recurring theme.
"Well I don't know much about it," Tynekia Dickerson said.
Some other residents said that their biggest fear about calling Crime Solvers is being identified.
"You know nobody wants to be a snitch," Brianna Jones said. "And let anyone else know that they told the cops."
Robinson said he wants to reassure the public that there is no worry about anonymity, "We want them to know that they can call us and remain totally anonymous," Robinson said. "We are not going to ask their names."
Many times there is a reward of up to $1000 for information that leads to the capture of the most wanted, Robinson said. 
The number to reach Crime Solvers is (410) 548-1776.
