Crime Stoppers is kicking of its 27th year of crime fighting in Mesa County.
Program leaders, police and school officials and the district attorney attended the ceremony at the Old County Courthouse Tuesday afternoon.
Crime Stoppers highlighted some of its successes and said it was continuing to build relationships throughout the community to detur and solve cases and recover drugs and stolen property.
The Grand Junction Police Department says the program has made a huge difference.
