Crime Solvers Scholastic Program
The Crime Solvers Scholastic Program is designed to get our youth involved in civil service and community awareness. Crime Solvers has a club in most middle schools and in some of the high schools in Chesterfield County and the city of Colonial Heights. Each club’s main objective is to promote Crime Solvers in their school by word of mouth and through promotional items. The clubs also determine how much of a reward to give tipsters who help resolve cases involving their school campus. Throughout the school year, club members learn how Crime Solvers works and they discuss creative ways to get the word out to their fellow classmates. Each school club has a Faculty Advisor, a Crime Solvers board member, and a Law Enforcement Coordinator. The student members do not investigate crimes or take Crime Solvers tips. If your school does not have a Crime Solvers club and you are interested in starting one, please contact the Crime Solvers Business Office at 804-748-1278 or click HERE to send an email to a Crime Solvers Coordinator.
As of THURSDAY, 4 p.m....
Again...we have CANCELED today's End-of-Year event because of the strong chance of rain. We had to make a judgement call, and it was too much of a coin toss to put students and parents in the middle of a potential downpour, so we are rescheduling the event to THURSDAY, MAY 30! Students MUST RSVP for the NEW date!
The End-of-the-Year party has been scheduled, and we are looking to have a GREAT time with all those who have helped us advertize the Crime Solvers program in the schools. PLEASE print this form out, have it signed by a parent and bring it with you to the event. ONLY STUDENTS who have attended meetings throughout the year are eligible. If you question YOUR eligibility, ask your Faculty Advisor.
Crime Solvers Club Students Learn MORE Than Just Crime Solvers.
Scholastic Club members at Midlothian Middle School were able to learn about more than just Crime Solvers at their recent club meeting. As a "Thank You" for their help thusfar in the school year, a Forensic Specialist from the Chesterfield County Police Department visited the school and spoke to the students about the importance of forensics in solving cases. Instead of just a simple PowerPoint presentation, students were able to use real collection techniques to collect fingerprints, shoe prints and even EAR prints.
Students who help the Crime Solvers program are "thanked" throughout the school year with these special presentations. If you are a student who might be interested in helping Crime Solvers. Ask your principal HOW.
|We have now created a generic Scholastic Program Application form for those who have not yet turned one in and may have lost theirs. Remember, students, you MUST have this permission form filled out and signed by a parent or guardian in order to participate as a Crime Solvers Club member...EVEN if you are a returning member.

|Reagan Urban (pictured) and Samantha Menjivar, from the Scholastic Club at Tomahawk Creek Middle School, received gift bags for their assistance in the preliminary stages of a new fundraising opportunity for Crime Solvers. Crime Solvers now accepts empty foil drink pouches (like CapriSun) in partnership with TerraCycle to raise money. For every pouch sent to TerraCycle, that company will donate $0.02 to our program. In the 2010-2011 school year, the clubs will begin a more organized effort to collect pouches.|
|During the 2008-2009 school year, the Crime Solvers club at Clover Hill High School created and performed a skit "Crime Solvers Man". Phil-Oney and Miss Demeaner were up to no good...until Crime Solvers Man and his counterparts, Hyper Link and Texta Tip, came to save the day. We look forward to more productions in future clubs.|
