The Hopewell - Prince George Crime Solvers held its annual Rib Fest on Oct. 5 at Scott park in Prince George.
They honored Retired Prince George Police Captain K.V. Butler. Crime Solvers President Randy Sealey said, Butler “has dedicated his life to law enforcement and the community. He played a significant role in bringing the Hopewell-Prince George Crime Solvers into the school system helping to solve and prevent crimes while keeping our children safe.
Because of his dedication and hard work the programs continue to thrive in our local schools today.” Hopewell Police Chief John Keohane and Prince George Chief Keith Early both shared their gratitude for Butler’s contributions. The Hopewell-Prince George Crime Solvers has paid out tens of thousands in cash payments to individuals who have assisted in solving crimes.
This money is received solely through donations and fund-raising events.
Crime Solvers, a 501-3c non profit, does NOT receive any tax dollars and is managed by a group of volunteers with the assistance of local law enforcement agents. The Hopewell-Prince George Student Crime Solvers is a program that involves students, school administration and staff, and police in the reduction and prevention of crime on school property.
It offers anonymity and cash ewards to students who furnish information leading to an arrest or disciplinary action against offenders. It also offers anonymity and cash rewards to students who furnish information that prevent crimes from occurring, such as threats of violence and intimidation.
