Is Crime Stoppers at risk?

Al Sismey, regional Crime Stoppers coordinator for the South Okanagan Similkameen area, presented the 2013 Crime Stoppers year end report at the recent Regional District of Okanagan Similkameen board meeting.

Among the items he focused on were Crime Stoppers' efforts in 2013, the fact it is a community program, not a police program, the number of tips received in 2013, and its future.

The latter was touched on when Penticton Mayor Garry Litke, also a board director, asked if the program was at risk.

To which Sismey responded he understood it was, with the police wanting his position remarried with crime prevention.

Further information on what's next is expected to be provided in a presentation by Penticton RCMP Inspector Kevin Hewco at the next RDOS meeting on March 20.
