"Savannah's Challenge" to New Orleans Youth: Thank Police Officers

April 7, 2015 | Posted in: President's Corner
Crimestoppers of Greater New Orleans recently issued a challenge to the private and public schools in the nine parishes it covers to join them in writing thank you letters to local law enforcement to thank them for all they do for the community.  This challenge was issued by Crimestoppers GNO President and CEO, Darlene Cusanza at a press conference covered by all the major local television stations and newspapers.  “We saw a story on the national news about a young girl in Tyler, TX, Savannah Solis, who had sent over 1,000 thank you cards to officers from Texas to New York and was challenging other young people to follow in her footsteps and do the same in their community,” said Cusanza. “ We thought this was such a great idea and decided to join the “challenge” by organizing our own letter writing campaign for area schools to thank police officers.” Our Crimestoppers program has its own Safe School hotline program and speak to many schools, but we do not focus as much on the Elementary schools.  This gave us the perfect opportunity to reach this audience.  Crimestoppers GNO personally contacted school superintendents to ask them to participate in the challenge and within one week, had over seven school districts signing on to take the “challenge”.  The initiative was mentioned at the Crimestoppers Annual Awards Luncheon, with over 800 individuals present.  Of the 800, at least 350 guests were representatives of law enforcement across the nine parish area.  Crimestoppers printed thank you cards for each school that were delivered to for students to write their “thank you” message.   Crimestoppers and law enforcement then plans to pick up the cards and deliver them to the law enforcement office located close to each school who will be asked to post some of the cards for the public and their officers to see. Each participating school will be given a ... » Read More

If you submit an anonymous tip to Crimestoppers and it leads to a successful felony arrest or helps solve a felony crime, you will now be paid a cash reward on arrest.

With a faster turn around on the rewards, Crimestoppers hopes to encourage more callers to send in their anonymous tips and help solve crimes faster.  The process of calling Crimestoppers is simple. You call 822-1111 or 1-877-903-STOP, which puts you in contact with the Crimestoppers command center. An operator will answer the phone and take down the information you wish to provide about a crime. He or she will never ask for your name, number, address, or any other identifying information. Once you give Crimestoppers the information, you will be assigned a code number, which is the only method Crimestoppers has of identifying you. You must remember this number, and provide it to a Crimestoppers operator when you call back to check on the status of the information you have given. You must call Crimestoppers. We cannot call you, because we never ask for your phone number. In the meantime, Crimestoppers passes your information on to the appropriate law enforcement agency, which takes action based on your information and reports back to us on whether it led to an arrest or the solving or prevention of a crime. When you call Crimestoppers back and give us your code number, we check with law enforcement to see whether your information was useful. If it was, you receive a cash reward which will be paid through a designated bank drive-up by using the designated tip number. (Exception will be on homicides - where you will be paid 1/2 of the reward on arrest and the remaining 1/2 on indictment of the suspect)  ... » Read More
