Get involved to get it solved
You Have To Get Involved To Get It Solved!
Are you tired of every time you pick up the newspaper or turn on the radio or television to hear that someone has been robbed, killed, or beaten only to hear the suspect is still at large. When you go out about your business, do you overhear or you engage in conversations of what are the police doing?
Well, the police can’t do it all alone. They need the community’s help. They need your help, and you can do so without giving your name or going to court.
I want to challenge you to get involved. How so? You can join a non-profit organization. One that can help the police to make some arrests for current and past crimes.
The Petersburg Dinwiddie Crime Solvers Board of Directors has open enrollment coming up real soon - as soon as Tuesday October 9 at the Petersburg Bus Station 2nd Floor Conference Room, starting at 8am to 9am. It’s located at 100 W. Washington St. Petersburg.
I’m a victim of a crime. My youngest son, DeAndre J. Thomas, was murdered in 2005 here in Petersburg, and his case is still open. I desperately need a witness or witnesses to come forward so that I can get justice in his case. I can’t begin to tell you how hard it is to live in a city, my hometown, not knowing who killed my beloved son and why. There’s no way of knowing if the person or persons have killed one of your loved ones or friends.
Please don’t wait until it happens to someone you love to get involved. I joined this organization myself because I want to be a part of bringing justice for not only my son but for anyone who has been violated. That’s why I’m advocating for you to join.
Crime Solvers is a community involvement program, created to provide a means for citizens to safely and anonymously report information about unsolved crimes and fugitives. They are a nonprofit organization that is funded primarily through tax-deductible donations from businesses, civic organizations, and most importantly citizens. The donations are used for rewards paid out to callers.
Crime Solvers pays no salaries. Crime Solvers is a non-stock 501 (C)(3) charitable organization dedicated exclusively to fighting against crime in our community. Crime Solvers has been around since 1985 and still going strong. In addition to calling 861-1212, you can now download P3 apps to give information anonymously and receive a cash reward for doing so.
Now that you know a bit more about the organization, it is my hope that you will consider joining. Your ideas and participation are needed. The meetings are held every second Tuesday of every month. I hope to see you there.
