KC CrimeStoppers award breakfast

The Kansas City CrimeStoppers are integral to justice in this community and have helped police across the metro arrest thousands of criminals. They're a great partner to law enforcement, but they do other amazing things, too. Yesterday, their annual recognition breakfast honored the many businesses, agencies, and indivuals who support CrimeStoppers throughout the year.

Pictured with CrimeStoppers Board Member and Master of Ceremonies Lara Moritz are winners of CrimeStoppers' annual scholarship contest: Brianna Forbes of Lee's Summit West High School and Alex Burnett of Shawnee Mission West High School. Each won a $1,000 scholarship to the college of their choice and were selected because of their outstanding essays.

Also recognized were several Kansas City Missouri Police Department units who regularly assist CrimeStoppers: Homicide Unit, Robbery Unit, Street Narcotics Unit, Gang Squad, Illegal Firearms Unit, Property Crimes Division represented by Metro and Central Patrol Property Crimes personnel, Fugitive Apprehension Unit, Career Criminal Unit, Investigations Unit, Special Victims Unit, Vice Unit and the Perpetrator Information Center.
