San Bernardino, CA, May 14, 2012, 8:00am - Four decades ago the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department began a working relationship with WeTip. The toll-free hotline allows citizens who have information about a crime to advise the authorities without having to reveal their identity. A recent memo released by Sheriff Rod Hoops says WeTip has recognized the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department as the 2012 National Sheriff’s Department of the Year. WeTip’s President, Daniel Mayfield said, “WeTip and the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department are committed to the safety and security of the people of this county.” The WeTip hot-line has proven to be an effective tool for law enforcement. Without the services provided by WeTip and the outstanding efforts of the Sheriff’s Department, many crimes could go unsolved.
