FAIR BLUFF, NC (WECT) - Making nine arrests in two weeks, police in Fair Bluff have crossed off a list of nearly a dozen wanted suspects, and Police Chief Justin Hewett says that the community policing helped to catch the men and women.
"I really believe in community policing," said Hewett. "Most of the arrests we recently made were done due to concerned citizens calling us with information on these people and where they were located."
He also says getting his department up-to-date with crime-fighting technology is also keeping them ahead of crooks.
"We have access to NC Aware now and CJ Leads," said Hewett. "When we pull vehicles over, we can run license plates. Plus, look and see if someone has a warrant."
