PRLog - Aug. 17, 2014 - FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla. -- Since 1981, Broward County (http://www.browardcrimestoppers.org) Crime Stoppers has worked closely with local, state and federal law enforcement agencies to catch criminals and stop criminal activities in the area. Because the tips and valuable information can come from anywhere, Broward County Crime Stoppers is increasing their social media footprint to make it easier than ever before for people to submit tips that could lead to an arrest. To accomplish this, Crime Stoppers has hired Amplification, Inc., (http://amplificationinc.com) a Broward County-based marketing, communication, advertising and public relations company that specializes in digital and social media.

“We seek to increase awareness of our organization and its mission online and on popular social media so residents and visitors can quickly and easily provide tips,” explains Paul Jaworski, President and CEO of Broward County Crime Stoppers.

Examples of their social media efforts include a regularly updated Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/browardcrimestoppers) that features alerts regarding crimes currently under investigation. A YouTube channel features (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCcWdqAqWdk6dG6aK6xz3l5w) videos with interviews and updates with Broward County officials.

These include a call to action from Chief Frank Adderley of the City of Fort Lauderdale and Sheriff Scott Israel of the Broward County Sheriff’s Office, among others.

“Our goal as partners is to increase strategic awareness on social media in order to generate tips that solve crimes and result in a safer Broward County,” says Steve Cabeza, with Amplification, Inc (http://amplificationinc.com). “Through increasing exposure on social media channels, we hope to empower a new group of digitally active people who have the power to assist in making Broward a better and safer place to live via the smartphones we all carry around.”

Crime Stoppers also offers a Twitter page that sends alerts and updates on active cases. As always, Crime Stoppers upholds its policy of collecting, processing and distributing tips and awarding reward monies anonymously.

“We always protect the identities of those who provide us with tips and are delighted to provide rewards to those who provide valid tips,” says Ralph Page, Executive Director of Broward County Crime Stoppers. “We truly need the community’s help to make a difference, so join us in making Broward County a better place to live.”
