Garfield County Crime Stoppers would like to thank the Garfield County Sheriff’s Auxiliary for their support and generosity. The Garfield County Sheriff’s Auxiliary donated more than $1,300 to Garfield County Crime Stoppers for the purchase of the TIPS software system, an Internet-based tip reporting system that will enable citizens to submit anonymous tips to Crime Stoppers. This will be a valued asset to the citizens of Garfield County and Crime Stoppers, and is an important step toward utilizing our ever-evolving technology to combat crime in Garfield County.

Garfield County Crime Stoppers is a nonprofit, community-based program the primary purpose of which is to collect anonymous tips to help solve crimes. The organization uses funds received through contributions from the community to collect information through these anonymous tips, which is then used to help law enforcement communities solve crimes and further investigations. Contributions help to cover operational costs, and are also used to pay rewards to tipsters for information leading to the arrest and/or filing of charges against persons committing crimes. Crime Stoppers also awards scholarships to local school districts for qualifying students interested in the field of law enforcement when funding is available.

Garfield County Sheriff’s Auxiliary is a volunteer organization consisting of local citizens whose primary focus is lending support to the community and the Garfield County Sheriff’s Office. The members of the Sheriff’s Auxiliary can be seen walking our children safely across the street to school, helping with traffic control, participating at community events and fundraisers, providing transportation and moral support to local citizens needing medical care who would otherwise be unable to receive the care needed, and awarding scholarships to local high school students to attend college, some of whom would not be able to further their education without the help of the Sheriff’s Auxiliary. These are just a few of the many important functions that the Sheriff’s Auxiliary carries out in support of our local communities. They are truly a valued asset to all of Garfield County, and we appreciate everything they do.

Thank you again, Garfield County Sheriff’s Auxiliary, for your generosity and support.

American Legion Post 83 gives a salute of thanks to the following for making the 2009 Memorial Day Ceremony a successful one. Pastor Jeff Carlson and Mr. Ron Milhorn shared many great words of wisdom and reverence. The musically talented singer Katie Waller and trumpeter Waltor Gorra were complimented by many individuals for their portions of the ceremony. Scouts of Troop 225 reverently placed the flags at half-mast. The women of the auxiliaries gracefully placed the wreaths. A special thanks goes to the Noon Rotarians and Troop 225 for assisting with the placing of the more than 500 flags. Vast appreciation goes to the Post Independent and KMTS for their annual coverage. Perhaps the greatest thanks goes to an increasing amount of the community that dedicates some time from their Memorial Day Weekend to honor the fallen veterans.
