SWFL Crime Stoppers honored for productivity, community outreach
Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers recently announced that its program was honored with two awards at the 34th annual training conference of the Southeastern Crime Stoppers Association held in Williamsburg, Virginia.
The local program was lauded as the most productive program of its size in the entire Southeastern United States. Southwest Florida Crime Stoppers has received this award for eight consecutive years.
The program was also awarded its "Most Creative Advertising" award for the weekly segments that are produced in house at the Lee County Sheriff's Office, focusing on unsolved crimes throughout the five-county area.
The segments are produced at zero extra cost to Crime Stoppers, and are written by coordinator Trish Routte and edited by Deputy Joseph Heuglin.
