Corpus Christi Crime Stoppers Luncheon

Yesterday the Corpus Christi Crime Stoppers Board hosted its annual Judges Appreciation Luncheon and Awards Banquet. The luncheon serves several purposes,

First, it’s serves as a way to say “Thank You” to the judges who support our program.  They do so  by administering a fine to every individual that is placed on probation in their courts. This particular fine is used by the Crime Stoppers program for the solo purpose of paying rewards to the tipsters who call the Crime Stoppers Hotline. So in a sense what happens is that the very individual who has been convicted of a crime in our county is now paying to put another criminal behind bars.

Secondly, we recognized the most productive Campus Crime Stoppers program for the previous school year. Those schools who excelled for the 2010-2011 school year are Moody High School and South Park Middle School.  Both of these campuses have had a long-standing succesful Crime Stoppers program which continue to promote and encourage participation in reporting illegal activity on their campus.

The luncheon is a fundraiser for the program, as mentioned above, the dollars received from the judges is strictly ear-marked for rewards and can not be used for the day-to-day operations of the Crime Stoppers office.

Therefore, the board is tasked with funding the operational cost of maintaining the Crime Stoppers office and this luncheon has proven to be a great resource to do just that. In the past, this function has raised nearly $6,000 to maintain the Crime Stoppers office.
