Philadelphia, March 6, 2012 –   In accordance with the new crime fighting measures announced in January, Channel 64, the government access channel, and the Philadelphia Police Department will air slides featuring the photos and vital information for the 100 most wanted persons who have outstanding violent felony warrants.  In an effort to elicit public cooperation in the apprehension of violent criminals, these slides will air on Channel 64 throughout the day and can be accessed on the Philadelphia Police Department website (http://www.phillypolice.com) anytime.
