Crossville-Cumb. Co. Crimestoppers Prepares For Record Year

Crossville-Cumb. Co. Crimestoppers Prepares For Record Year
Submitted: LT. Brian Eckelson, Crimestoppers Coordinator, Crossville Police Department Thursday January 28, 2016

The Crossville – Cumberland County Crimestoppers program is preparing for a record year. Now into its 10th year, crime solving tips have increased 5 fold! With participation from the citizens of Crossville and Cumberland County, as well as surrounding areas, Crimestoppers has helped to solve crimes, identify criminals and recover stolen property. Today, Crimestoppers is helping more families and individual victims of crime than ever before. Crimestoppers is working toward a better future for our community, by preventing future crimes.

Crimestoppers success is due in-part to partnerships with news outlets, printed media and local broadcast radio. Additionally, social networking on Facebook, where the post reach is nearing the 110,000 mark, helps Crimestoppers stay in contact with the community. With 5,087 page likes today, a goal of 10,000 likes by year’s end is very possible. Crossville-Cumberland County Crimestoppers reach has even caught the attention of a police agency in another state, who has called looking for information on how they might duplicate a Community Partnerships program.

The longest serving Crimestoppers board members, Betty Bowman and Terry Stephens, have been involved with the program since its inception in 2006. “Our Crimestoppers program has grown very quickly in the last couple of years. Helping our community is why we got started.” “Crimestoppers is doing more good than ever before, and that’s a great thing!”

The Crimestoppers board would like to thank all of those who have participated in making the program a success. A special thank you for the generous support from the City of Crossville Police Department, Cumberland County Sheriff’s office and the local Wal-Mart Supercenter for the donations that continue to help the program pay cash rewards for the tips that we receive. Crimestoppers would like to invite everyone to visit their Facebook page:
