Godair, who is also the Crime Stoppers Coordinator, said they’re excited to already have calls coming in but couldn’t say what crime the first tip was about. He said tipsters who call into Crime Stoppers can remain anonymous, and that the reward is based on an arrest and on the severity of the crime.
“In February of this year, a group of citizens came together and formed a board, and Cadiz/Trigg County Crime Stoppers was born,” said Godair. “Since that time, the group has met once a month together, making this happen.”
At the ribbon cutting for the program, which was held at 11 a.m. at the Trigg County Sheriff’s Office, Godair said Crime Stoppers is “100 percent contribution funded” and thanked the Trigg County Fiscal Court, Cadiz/Trigg County Chamber of Commerce, Officer Paul Ray of the Hopkinsville Police Department – who is part of the Hopkinsville/Christian County Crime Stoppers group – the Cadiz/Trigg County Crime Stoppers board and others for their help so far.
