COLORADO SPRINGS, COLO. (Dec. 3, 2020) -- New leadership and an expanding board have taken the reins at Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers.
Pikes Peak Area Crime Stoppers (PPACS) organization is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization governed by volunteer trustees. PPACS is a member of Crime Stoppers USA, the nationwide Crime Stoppers network that works with local law enforcement agencies to help solve crimes and identify suspects wanted by local agencies.
Don Addy, a community advocate in Colorado Springs, has accepted the role as chairman of the organization and is looking forward to the coming year.
“I’ve always been impressed with the work of PPACS and I’m happy to contribute to its successes,” Addy said. “My biggest goal, going into the new year, will be to raise awareness in our community. The first step will be fostering relationships with local businesses, in a collaborative program we’ve created with the BBB of Southern Colorado.”
Addy, whose extensive resume includes time served as Vice President of the Board of Trustees of The Police Foundation of Colorado Springs, and as an officer of Pikes Peak Crime Stoppers, is a natural fit to lead the organization. Addy has also given many years of service in support of the men and women of the military. He also spent time as the Chairman of The Military Affairs Council of the Colorado Springs Chamber of Commerce.
Addy is also focused on growing the Crime Stoppers program, which allows individuals to provide anonymous tips regarding criminal activity, without being directly involved in the investigation process - because it operates separately from law enforcement.
Still, local agencies strongly endorse PPACS, which has provided anonymous tips for more than 30 years.
"Over that time, information from our local Crime Stoppers has directly led to the arrest of many violent offenders as well as clearances for a substantial number of homicides and other serious offenses,” said CSPD Police Chief Vince Niski.
The most critical challenge faced by PPACS is funding which will support the operation and assure long-term sustainability of the organization.
