MONTROSE – Alpine Bank Montrose is now supporting the newly reestablished Montrose Regional Crime Stoppers organization. The previous Crime Stoppers program was terminated, due to communications issues, which were resolved by the state of the art Montrose County Sheriff’s Dispatch Center, under the leadership of Communications Director Susan Byrne, with full support of law enforcement leadership in the 7th Judicial District. The Board of Directors of Montrose Regional Crime Stoppers Inc. is comprised of a well-rounded group of concerned local residents who want to see the success of Crime Stoppers brought back to not only Montrose but the entire 7th Judicial District.
“We are glad to have Crime Stopper presence restored in our community. They provide not only assistance to our local law enforcement but a means for individuals to step forward with information, and remain anonymous,” says Allison Nadel, regional marketing director for Alpine Bank. Callers may also receive awards if their information leads to an arrest.
John W. Nelson, the current board president of Montrose Regional Crime Stoppers, Inc., cites its mission statement: “The Montrose Regional Crime Stoppers program is a partnership of public, law enforcement and the media to provide assistance in solving crimes and to improve public safety within the 7th Judicial District through the collection of critical information and intelligence regarding criminal activity, unsolved crimes and the whereabouts of fugitives. Crime Stoppers provides a system for soliciting and receiving anonymous tips as well as offering monetary rewards to tipsters in exchange for information that leads to an arrest.
All donations to the program are tax deductible and may be sent to Crime Stoppers c/o the Montrose Police Department. Crime Stoppers works with but is totally independent of all law enforcement agencies.”
