F.C. Police Seeks Volunteers for Crime Solvers Board

The City of Falls Church Police Department is hosting an information session for City residents, business owners, and interested individuals to volunteer for the Crime Solvers Board. The session will be held Tuesday, Jan. 31, at 7:30 p.m., in the Dogwood Room in City Hall (300 Park Ave., Falls Church).

Crime Solvers is a community-oriented program involving citizens, the business community, news media, and the Police Department working together in the fight against crime. The Board would pay cash rewards to anonymous informants who provide information leading to the arrest and indictment of any person or persons who commit crimes or to the capture of a wanted person. No tax dollars are used for rewards as Crime Solvers depends on the community for the funds. The Board will work independently from but in partnership with the Police Department.
