Azusa : Crime Stoppers Program
Actors may soon be re-enacting crimes from the files of the Azusa Police Department for cable television under an Azusa Crime Stoppers Program proposed by Police Chief Lloyd J. Wood and endorsed by the City Council. The program is patterned after San Diego’s Crime Stoppers Program, which Wood said has been highly successful.
The plan calls for creation of a committee of volunteers to raise money for rewards for information that helps police solve crimes. Wood said the Police Department would select a crime of the week or month and then publicize it through the news media, or perhaps recruit actors to re-enact the crime for telecast on the local cable channel. Rewards could range up to $1,000.
