NEW BERN, N.C. (WNCT) — The Craven County Sheriff’s Office is revamping its Crime Stoppers unit.

The office has formed a new board of directors, made up of volunteers. Rewards will be given to people for anonymous tips that help solve crimes, make arrests or recover stolen property.

“They are our eyes and ears,” Craven County Sheriff Chip Hughes said. “They come up with great ideas and ways to fund them. So I’m not going before the county commissioners asking for more taxpayer dollars, to do such and such plan when I have a board that has raised money with a common goal of making Craven County a safer place to live, work and raise a family.”

The unit relies on donations and fundraisers in order to give out rewards. To make a donation visit their website.
