Duncan CrimeStoppers honors law officers

Duncan, Okla._The CrimeStoppers group held a dinner in Duncan Thursday night to honor the efforts of law enforcement officers of Stephens County.
The group said they wanted to recognize those who worked to keep the peace and those who had given their lives serving others. CrimeStoppers Board member Blaine Smith said the organization wanted to show their thanks to those who worked the hardest in keeping the streets safe.

 "We haven't done anything in a long time to recognize the dedication of our law enforcement officers, because when we get those tips, they go to the law enforcement guys, and they're the ones who've gotta solve it," Smith said.

The event's main speaker was former Lt. Governor Jari Askins of Duncan.   Smith said CrimeStoppers will be starting a "Crime of the Week" program, which will cover challenging cases. The Duncan CrimeStoppers can be contacted at (580) 252-4636, and all tips can remain anonymous.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
