Crime Stoppers seeks support

The Central Peninsula Crime Stoppers board is seeking community support for its annual poster drive. With sponsorship from area businesses, the group each year publishes posters featuring the phone number of the local Crime Stoppers tip-line. The posters are displayed in businesses and public locations around the peninsula. Each poster also features replication of a business card representing each of 15 sponsors.

Businesses, groups or individuals wishing to sponsor posters can do so for a donation of $50 or more. The $50 fee will get their name on the poster. A $100 donation will sponsor 30 posters. Donations beyond the cost of publishing the posters will be used for payment of rewards for information that helps solve crimes on the peninsula.

Crime Stoppers has been active on the peninsula for more than 20 years and been instrumental in solving nearly 250 crimes ranging from murder and theft to narcotics. More than $200,000 worth of stolen property has been recovered locally, and more than $1.6 million in illegal drugs have been confiscated. Central Peninsula Crime Stoppers has paid out more than $16,000 in rewards.

To help sponsor a poster or for more information, call Susan Savely at 252-8890. Donations are tax deductible and also can be sent to Crime Stoppers, P.O. Box 1341, Kenai, AK 99611.
