CrimeStoppers coasters to hit local bars

WICHITA _ The Wichita Police Department has teamed with the House of Schwan to put drink coasters in bars and restaurants promoting CrimeStoppers.

About 26,000 of the black and yellow coasters have been printed so far, said police spokesman Gordon Bassham.

They will be distributed to establishments that do business with the House of Schwan.

CrimeStoppers is a program that allows people to leave anonymous tips about crimes. Cash rewards are possible if a tip leads to an arrest.
