Petersburg-Dinwiddie Crime Solvers seeking board members

Board members approve rewards, raise funds, and promote the program

The Crime Solvers organization has a unique beginning.

Crime Stoppers began in 1976 in Albuquerque, New Mexico, with a re-enactment of the murder of a gas station attendant. The local media publicized the crime and an offer of a reward. Anonymous tips led to the solving of the crime. Today, there are over 1,200 individual Crime Stoppers/Solvers organizations in more than 20 countries. These chapters have been responsible for arresting 600,000 individuals and recovering 6 billion dollars in property and drugs.

Each Crime Stoppers chapter is administered by a board of directors who approves rewards, raises funds, and promotes the program.

The success of Crime Stoppers/Solvers is dependent on a three-way partnership between citizens, local media, and law enforcement.

The Best of Television 2016: Late Night On The Election, Making A Murderer, 2 Views of O.J. Simpson

The bottom of this year’s Top 10 list is nothing if not topical. The election was the biggest, strangest story of the year, and one talk show managed above all to cut through the absurdity.

9. Making a Murderer (Netflix):

Yes, I know MaM debuted in late December of 2015, but this Netflix documentary made its impact in the early weeks of 2016. A 10-hour long examination of a decade-old murder trial is wildly unlikely candidate as a catalyst for a pop culture phenomenon. But audiences connected with Steven Avery, and especially his defense attorneys Jerry Buting and Dean Strang and the conspiracy theory they proposed. More to the point, some tangible good seems to have come from all this: innocent man-–Avery’s

How Websleuths & Filmmakers Sparked A Revelation In Gilgo Murders Case

When the biggest story in years broke this month in the unsolved Long Island Serial Killer case, few noticed that an online community of crime buffs and two filmmakers sparked the revelation.

The news went national when local investigators reported to a federal database that a DNA match meant partial skeletal remains found on Ocean Parkway in 2011 belonged to an unidentified woman whose torso was discovered in Rockville Centre in 1997, which in turn confirmed the victim—dubbed “Peaches” because of her fruit tattoo—was the mother of the lone child recovered amid the carnage uncovered in the Gilgo Beach murders probe. It was widely reported to be the most significant update in the investigation since the last bodies were found. Although most reports omitted it, the story behind how this forensic clue was unearthed raises as many questions about the case as the news itself.

“Unfortunately, we’re playing catch up,” Joseph Giacalone,
