About our Program

 

This Crime Stoppers Program began in 1984 from the efforts of Captin Dave Hanson.  Our Program now operates as an independent organization. The concept has developed into a combination of efforts by local media, businesses, civic and social clubs, law enforcement agencies, and the public. Donations of airtime, newspaper space, and reward monies have established Crime Stoppers as an effective tool to fight crime in the area.

Combined efforts
