HAMPTON FALLS – Beginning on Fri., March 22 until Mon., April 1, Crimeline for the Hamptons, Inc., will hold a 10-day fundraiser at the Poker Room at One Lafayette Road in Hampton Falls. The proceeds of this event will be used for rewards, scholarships, and police related donations.
For those who do not have experience playing games of chance, there will be a table for people to learn how to play.
“This is really about coming out for a few hours to have some fun and help raise money for a good cause that benefits everyone who lives in our area,” said Karin Breen, Chair of Crimeline for the Hamptons, Inc. “The money we raise goes a long way in helping our community and police departments have more tools to fight crime,” Breen added.
Besides providing reward money and helping local police departments with items they need but are not funded in their budgets, Crimeline also funds a scholarship that is awarded annually to one local high school student who wishes to pursue a career in law enforcement or criminal justice, and to children of police officers from the Hampton, North Hampton, Hampton Falls, or Seabrook Police Departments.
Since its inception in 1994, Crimeline’s funds provide rewards for anonymous tips that lead to arrests and indictments for crimes in North Hampton, Hampton, Hampton Falls, and Seabrook. Knowledge provided about any crime, anywhere, if presented to Crimeline for the Hamptons, Inc., may be eligible for a reward. Up to $1,000 is rewarded for tips that lead to an arrest or indictment, or help a criminal investigation.
