WPD tries to fight crime with wheels


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- Wilmington Police are trying to fight crime with the help of drivers who spend much of their time on the road.

Police are hoping these drivers will be the eyes and ears of the police force.

Tips on Wheels participants include taxis, tow trucks, Public Works and others. Police train drivers how to be reliable witnesses to report crime when they see it.

Since March 1, nine companies have already signed up to be part of the program.
