Wood: Crime Stoppers Is Great Asset

Christie Wood: Crimestoppers has proven to be an incredible asset to law enforcement in helping us solve crimes through a cash reward system for anonymous tips. I remember the humble beginnings very well. We started out as Secret Witness of Kootenai County and relied heavily on the good citizens of Spokane to help us with our program. The program has evolved to CrimeStoppers, and it has a very dedicated Board of Directors. They do all of the work in raising money to pay for the rewards. I keep hoping a local bank or supermarket will make them part of their charitable yearly contributions since they offer up so many rewards for them to solve robberies and thefts. Like every other non-profit they are constantly faced with trying to raise money. Nice job on the Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre

Question: How big of a problem do you think crime is in Coeur d'Alene/North Idaho?
