That's right...WATSON (the headline gave it away, right?). WATSON, our Text-A-Tip mascot, will be out and about on Aug. 5, so make sure your Chesterfield County neighborhood block party is REGISTERED with Chesterfield Police. He MIGHT just make it to YOURS!
CCCH Crime Solvers Turns 30!
This year, our Crime Solvers program celebrates its 30th year in opperation, 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 on Jan. 16 at the Country Club at the Highlands. With Christina Feerick (8 News Anchor) as our MC for the evening, our sponsors were recognized (including our golf tournament Title Sponsor, Mercedes-Benz of Midlothian) and 30 years of Crime Solvers memories were relived. Three very pristigeous awards were also presented at the event. CONGRATULATIONS to Corporal Damien Connelley for earning the Crime Solvers Diligence Award for exceptional service by a law-enforcement officer; CONGRATULATIONS to Dr. David Beam for earning the Hulon Willis Award for exceptional short-term service by a board member; and CONGRATULATIONS to Harris Bacon for earning the Jim Bourque Founders Award for exceptional long-term service by a board member. We will post pictures from the event as soon as we are able. THANK YOU TO ALL who have supported this thirty-year journey. We have learned a lot, grown a lot, and have made a GREAT deal of progress in these thirty years. Let's work TOGETHER to make another 30 successful years.....shall we?
