BILOXI, MS (WLOX) - You’ve heard of the Crime Stoppers hotline, a tool people can use to call in tips anonymously to help solve crimes.
Tuesday morning, law officers from across South Mississippi were on the Coast to learn how to better serve their communities, and many of these officers are also being recognized for their efforts.
The goal of the 9th annual Law Enforcement Appreciation Awards Breakfast at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino in Biloxi was to say thank you to officers and others who have helped solve crimes and make a difference in their communities.
"Everybody has bought in on the Coast with Crime Stoppers, and we want to show our appreciation for that. We’re helping them. They’re helping us too. They’re spreading the word to residents of the Coast,” said Lori Massey with Coast Crime Stoppers.
