That was a BLAST!!
WOW...we had 57 people come to the End-of-Year Event, and EVERY ONE had a GREAT time. Whew...The heat and humidity had folks dripping wet with sweat, BUT the students and adults alike were so involved in the activities, the heat didn't put a damper on the FUN! Mr. Bolton, Owner of Ironbridge Sports Park, blew us away with his generosity and gave us a HUGE discount on FOUR...yes, FOUR activities throughout the park, Read More-->

Have You Met WATSON?
OK...so many of you have asked about the frog. What started as our web designer's cute idea has become a GREAT marketing resource for us. In order to send us a text message tip, you must enter the name WATSON as the first 6 characters of the message body. You would then send the entire message to the number 274637. Well...WATSON is not only our text messaging code...he is now our new MASCOT! Look for him at future Crime Solvers events. As a side note...WATSON is a quiet sort, but he spends a lot of time on the computer in the office.
Show Your Support!
You can help Crime Solvers AND show that support to others around you. For your donation of $10 or more, we will send you (at your request) a static cling decal that you can put on a car or home window. These are the same decals that will be displayed on patrol cars of the Chesterfield and Colonial Heights police departments.
Regional Text Tip Codes
With text messaging becoming such a popular means of communication, several local programs have taken advantage of software that allows anonymous text message tipping. The instructions for sending a text message tip are quite simple (the order may vary based on your specific phone model): type the jurisdiction code and then your tip in the same message. When you finish with that, you will send that message to the number 2-7-4-6-3-7 (which on keypads with numbers and letters will spell the word C-R-I-M-E-S)**. The code you entered will tell the receiving computer which jurisdiction the tip is for, and you, the tipster, should receive a message letting you know the tip was received. TO SEE A DEMO of how text tipping works, CLICK HERE.
Here is a list of jurisdiction codes for Crime Solvers/Stoppers programs in this area (these codes ARE NOT case sensitive)...
|Chesterfield County/Colonial Heights Crime Solvers||WATSON|
|Metro Richmond Crime Stoppers
(Richmond, Henrico, Hanover, New Kent, Goochland and Charles City)
|Hopewell/Prince George Crime Solvers||iGotcha|
|Petersburg/Dinwiddie Crime Solvers||PDCASH|
AND, of course....a related disclaimer from the folks who allow us the use of this software...
