Annotation: This film presents commercials of varied lengths which emphasize the importance of calling the police whenever there is something suspicious and helping to stop crime.
Abstract: Produced by the Governor's Council on Criminal Justice in Florida, the commercials show a woman viewing a loiterer from her window and debating whether or not to call the police; two men fleeing in a car; a shoplifter dropping an item from a store shelf into her bag; and a woman being dragged into a car screaming. The ads also underscore the importance of the stop-crime message by depicting stop-crime stickers on telephones. The commercials are recommended for use on television.
