The Lee County Sheriff TMs Office is teaming with Albany Crime Stoppers to get criminals off the street.
Lee County residents can now call into 436-TIPS and possibly receive a reward if an arrest and conviction is made.
This merger between Lee and Dougherty County is an attempt to strengthen the Crime Stoppers coverage area.
Officials say they can do a better job of fighting crime if both counties work together.
It's had a very good success rate in Albany. It's going to help pay the citizens of Lee County and give them a little incentive to call in with a tip and help us get bad guys behind bars, said Matt Pearce, Deputy Sheriff.
Lee County officials will receive calls for both Lee and Dougherty County.
