At the Wed, 4/3/2013 regular club meeting, Flemington Rotary presented a $3500 donation check to support Crime Stoppers of Hunterdon County.  Crime Stoppers is a volunteer, non-profit (501c3 pending) organization that provides cash rewards for tips that lead to the arrest or indictments of persons involved in a crime.  Crime Stoppers uses a combination of anonymity and monetary rewards to encourage individuals to come forward with information about crimes.  They want people to Get Involved without “Getting Involved!!!”  They note that too often, persons with vital information about crimes fail to contact the police because they fear retaliation or because they don’t want to testify in court.  The result of their reluctance is that many dangerous criminals, who should be behind bars, are still walking the streets.  Please note that if you see a crime being actively committed, they ask you to call 911.
