     DATE OF RELEASE: 7-10-07




   Wichita Falls Crime Stoppers and the Wichita County Sheriff’s Office and the Wichita Falls Police Department have joined forces in an effort to bring new light to old case files. Detectives from both WCSO and WFPD have been working to solve those cases and now have a new tool.
    The inmates at the Wichita County Jail will have access to new playing cards. On one side of the card will be a short synopsis of an old felony case. On the other side of the card is the Crime Stoppers Tip Line. The goal of the new program is to get the information regarding cold cases out there to individuals that might have new information. Inmates can call Crime Stoppers with that information and it will hopefully lead to a successful closure of the cases.

    The jail card program has been used successfully in other areas. If it proves to be a winning hand here, the cards can be ordered with new cases added.
