More than 200 people came out to support Clarksville-Montgomery County Crime Stoppers at its recently held 3rd Annual Blue Jean Ball.
Guests enjoyed a catered meal, live music from Nashville’s Pink Cadillac Band, dancing, door prizes and more.
Deeana McLaughlin serves on the organization’s board and as event chair for this year’s Blue Jean Ball.
“Crime Stoppers aids local law enforcement in solving crimes by providing citizens a way to make anonymous tips,” McLaughlin said. “Tipsters are eligible for rewards in different amounts depending on the type of case that it is, and nobody ever knows who provides the information.”
McLaughlin says that the tips they receive have helped solve a lot of crimes in Clarksville and Montgomery County.
“There is always someone out there who has information,” McLaughlin said. “But, they don’t always feel safe when calling the police. This program started in New Mexico about 40 years ago, and it has a proven record of protecting anonymity. This is our 3rd year operating in Clarksville-Montgomery County, and we were very pleased with the turnout at this year’s Blue Jean Ball.”
CPD Chief Al Ansley and Montgomery County Sheriff John Fuson each had their turn at the microphone. Both shared some impressive examples that highlighted the effectiveness of the Crime Stoppers program.
