Crime Stoppers partners with Houston call center
Special to The Monitor
VAN ZANDT COUNTY–To better handle anonymous tip calls, and to relieve the burden on emergency 911 dispatchers, Van Zandt County Crime Stoppers has contracted with a call center that specializes in such tips.
Calls to Crime Stoppers are now answered at the Crime Scene Information call center in La Porte, near Houston.
Previously, dispatchers at the Van Zandt County Sheriff’s Office had to juggle Crime Stoppers calls along with emergency calls and their many other duties.
Now, trained operators at the call center receive the crime tip information from anonymous callers and forward it to sheriff’s investigators for follow-up.
“Callers probably won’t notice any difference, and they can be assured that this whole process is designed to make sure they remain anonymous at every step of the way,” Van Zandt County Crime Stoppers president Andy Flowers said.
“Their phone number is never identified, for example, and the trained operators never get any information that could identify the callers,” Flowers added.
Flowers explained the change was made as part of an overall effort by Van Zandt County Crime Stoppers to improve its call handling processes and increase its outreach to the community, to make sure everyone knows about Crime Stoppers and its benefits.
Crime Stoppers will have booths at the Ben Wheeler Feral Hog Festival in October and Edgewood Heritage Festival in November, offering information about the group and accepting donations to continue its crime-fighting work.
Van Zandt County Crime Stoppers always offers cash rewards for anonymous tips that lead to the arrest of a criminal offender, someone who has either just committed a crime or is wanted on a warrant.
Rewards of up to $1,000 are financed by criminal court fines and donations.
For more information about Crime Stoppers call (903) 567-STOP (7867) or go to www.vanzandtcrimestoppers.org

 

Donate to Tri-County Library
Special to The Monitor
MABANK–Friends of the Tri-County Library held their monthly meeting Sept. 12.
Incoming president Madelyn Healey successfully increased membership within the support club by 32 members since January.
The new members have rejuvenated the club, offering great ideas to keep donations and funds rolling in for the next year.
The Friends of Tri-County is a viable resource which helps offset some of the facilities costs such as providing snacks for the summer reading program, book orders, and a donation for an Eagle Scout Project.
With 70 percent of state funding being cut for libraries state wide, Friends of Tri-County will continue to do their best to fill in the gaps where and when they are needed.
Many members, such as Alene Gibbs, have been with the club a long time.
Gibbs has been a loyal member, selling books at Tri-County Ford in Mabank. During the September meeting, Alene presented the Friends a check for $105 from book sales.
Gibbs has been a member since the library began and is an ardent supporter not only to the library, but the lake area community as well.
Please help your local library, by visiting businesses that also support our endeavor to keep the doors open.
Such as the BnR Pit Grill. During their Thursday Dine-in program, the Pit Grill will donate 10 percent of your meal price to the Tri-County Library. Tri-County Ford is also offering several ways to donate with a “Drive a Car” program and your next oil change. When you test drive a car, $10 will be given to the library and $1 for every oil change performed at their Quick Lane.
Other supportive businesses, who donate through their monthly water bill, include Cedar Creek Travel, Dance Connection, Harpole Properties, Liberty Baptist Church, Mabank Auto Parts (NAPA), Shorty’s Soda Shop, Family Video Store, and PrimaData Inc.
Everyone is welcome and encouraged to donate through their monthly water bill as every dollar is appreciated.
Contact Mabank City Hall at (903) 887-3241 for information about donating through your water bill.
