NY1 was honored by members of the NYPD Tuesday night.

The Police Foundation honored us for our stories encouraging people to call the Crime Stoppers Hotline with tips. 

NY1 reporter Clodagh McGowan was there to accept the award on our behalf from the Police Commissioner.

"Crime Stoppers is an integral part of what we do. It's extremely helpful in us solving cases. And I think the media plays a big part in that," said Police Commissioner James O'Neill. 

"I think it's so important that we have this partnership with the NYPD where they can impart, share with us some of the media of the videos, the pictures that they collect, and we can turn it around, get the information and get it on the air," McGowan said.

Remember: if you have a tip for police, that number to call is 1-800-577-8477.
