TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -  Sierra Vista Police Department is debuting a new poster as part of its Crime Solvers program.  This poster will alert any 'would-be' criminals that a business is actively working with the SVPD to identify and arrest criminals.  

The poster was created using ideas submitted by Buena High School art students and consists of an American eagle against a Stars and Stripes background. It is part of the Crime Solvers program that was launched back in January; it seeks the community's help in identifying 'caught-on-camera' criminals, whose images are posted online at www.SierraVistaAZ.gov.  

"Since the photographs have been posted on the website, we have received tips that have lead to the identification and arrest of five suspects," said Cpl. Scott Borgstadt, public information officer for SVPD, in a recent release. "Now we want criminals to know that local businesses and the police are working together to identify and arrest them."

The idea for the poster came from several high school art students and is a combination of two concepts, said the release.  "All of the ideas were great, but two really stood out," said Cpl. Borgstadt.  The two combined designs were submitted by Makenzie Sargent and Kayla Moss. "Ultimately we decided to blend the two concepts together to make a strong, eye-catching piece." SVPD is thanking all the students for their contributions to the Crime Solvers poster program.  

To view the Crime Solvers website go to: www.sierravistaaz.gov and search “crime solvers.” Anyone with information on the individuals listed can submit an anonymous tip at the bottom of the link or contact SVPD at (520) 452-7500.
