The Daily News Crimefighter program offered prize money to ordinary citizens who stopped criminal acts from being perpetrated. It was sponsored by the New York Daily News who not only gave over $60,000 to civilians who prevented crimes such as muggings and petty thefts, they hosted an awards ceremony as well. Prominent politicians such as Ronald Reagan were invited to and spoke at these ceremonies.
