Tips regarding the Texas Top 10 Most Wanted Fugitives and Sex Offenders can now be submitted through the widely popular social networking tool, Facebook. According to the Texas Department of Public Safety (TDPS), this new option for reporting tips will reach a completely new demographic audience, one who uses the Internet for a large percentage of their communication and interaction.
The Director of the TDPS is hoping that Facebook will help generate additional tips and make the process more convenient for the tipsters as well. The organization is determined to use traditional methods and innovative means to put dangerous criminals behind bars before “they have a chance to hurt anyone else”. They are targeting sex offenders and dangerous gang members, and the Governor’s Criminal Justice Division offers cash rewards as high as $20,000 dollars for the current fugitives.
In order for someone to submit a Facebook tip or to view the pictures of the wanted fugitives, they can visit www.facebook.com/texas10mostwanted to provide anonymous information. However, police and law enforcement agents will need to be discerning with the information that they receive through this new medium. In some cases, individuals may end up being accused of a crime or arrested for something they did not actually do.
