Our Police Departments Are Stronger And Our Communities Are Safer Because of NYS Crime Stoppers

“Our police departments are stronger-and our communities are safer-because of New York State Crime Stoppers.” These were closing comments made by Commissioner George Longworth (Left side of photo)of the Westchester County Department of Public Safety  as he stood before over two hundred police representing multiple agencies from six counties including Westchester, Rockland, Putnam, Dutchess, Orange, and Albany. The Commissioner was one of the guest speakers at New York State Crime Stoppers’ Detectives/Investigators Luncheon held on September 25th in New Rochelle, New York. The words he spoke summed up the ultimate purpose of  New York State Crime Stoppers, which exists to be a resource for federal, state, county and local law enforcement, while making New York State communities safer. Since its begining, this has been the purpose for this program to exist.

Special guest speaker Vincent D’Onofrio, (right side of photo)who portrays Major Case Detective Robert Goren in the popular television drama Law and Order – Criminal Intent, proclaimed,”You are the real deal” as he stood before a packed room of police investigators and high ranking law enforcement officials. “I portray a police detective who solves his cases in the sixty minute time frame of television, but you’re the real deal.”

Mr. D’Onofrio, who is a major supporter of New York State Crime Stoppers and law enforcement in general presented an emotional speech that included his experience in touring the crime scene with police after the Boston Bombings suspects were captured. He spoke of how that experience will always be with him and the respect he had for law enforcement who deal with some of the worst situations imaginable.

In an interview with Lou Young of CBS2 News, Vincent D’Onofrio gave Mr. Young a hands on demonstration of the New York State Crime Stoppers Mobile App, which is a new tool used by the organization that allows citizens to provide tips from there iPhone, Android or Blackberry phones directly to Crime Stoppers. http://newyork.cbslocal.com/video/9358291-vincent-donofrio-helps-spread-the-word-about-new-crimestoppers-app/

Guest speaker, NYSP Senior Investigator Patrick Beyea spoke of how New York State Crime Stoppers recently assisted  with a criminal investigation by helping them to engage the public regarding a fatal hit and run incident that left a World War II veteran dead as he went out to collect the mail outside his residence.

All-in-all, the New York State Crime Stoppers Detectives/Investigators Luncheon was a big success serving as a training session, a networking opportunity, an opportunity to share a great lunch while putting a face to voices on the phone during criminal investigations. New York State Crime Stoppers is deeply grateful to our special guest speakers, Commissioner George Longworth, Vincent D’Onofrio and Senior Investigator Patrick Beyea.
