Kroger. Crime Solvers. CASH!
If you shop at Kroger and you have a Kroger Plus card, you now have the ability to support Crime Solvers while shopping for groceries that you would be shopping for anyway.

The customer service desk at any of the Kroger stores would be happy to set one up for you. Then, every time you use your Kroger Plus card (after you have designated Crime Solvers as your charity of choice) a small percentage of your purchase will be donated to Crime Solvers.

If you have contacted the Crime Solvers office, either the business line or the telephone hotline, you have likely talked to Becky. We are so proud to announce that she was selected to receive the Civilian Employee of the Year Award from the Chesterfield County Police Department. We are blessed in this area to have such cooperation from the Chesterfield County Police Department that we have folks working full time to insure our civilian-administered program runs efficiently with the police department. Knowing what she has done to help our program and the residents of Chesterfield County, we understand why she is received this prestigious award. Read more --> HERE
No Taxes ALLOWED!
Our hope is that every person reading this knows that Crime Solvers pays cash rewards for tips that help law-enforcement agencies in Chesterfield and Colonial Heights solve cases or capture fugitives. What many still seem to misunderstand is that Crime Solvers does not AND CANNOT receive tax money to pay those rewards. Click HERE to learn more.
Would you donate through PayPal?
One of the primary purposes for the Crime Solvers Board of Directors is to raise money to sustain the rewards-for-tips component. Understanding that people choose to make donations in different ways and in different forms, we have decided to accept donations through PayPal, making donations by debit/credit card a reality. Banking has changed and few people are using bank checks anymore and even fewer seem to carry cash. For an organization that relies on donations, those facts posed significant challenges. Many people have trusted PayPal with their online/internet payments, so in order to make donations easier for our supporters, we decided to come aboard. We, at Crime Solvers, hope you will consider donating to us through this trusted, online system. Thank you, in advance, for your support! We are helping Chesterfield and Colonial Heights law enforcement agencies, as well as their citizens, combat crime. Will you partner with us?
Please respect your elders.
This year, our Crime Solvers program celebrates its 30th year in operation, helping coordinate efforts of citizens, law-enforcement and media in the fight against crime. To celebrate, and kick off the year, our board, law-enforcement friends and media supporters joined us in a celebratory banquet. MORE-->

From TRASH to TREASURE.
While people are not talking about it as much as they had, environmental consciousness is still a popular topic. We, in Crime Solvers, also believe that we should be good stewards of our environment, and have partnered with a company called Terracycle in Trenton, New Jersey to do our part. Our partnership has yielded more than $800 for our program...by collecting TRASH. Read more by visiting our Scholastic Program page.
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.
Regional Text Tip Codes
Do you prefer to TEXT rather than talk on the phone? Have no fear! Type the jurisdiction code and then your tip in the same message. Then, 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 enter tells 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...
