Program Coordinator’s Duties for Crime Stoppers
The Coordinator should be a person who is outgoing, friendly, enjoys working
with people, and is not adverse to working long hours. The key to the relationship between Law Enforcement and the Volunteer Board is the communication skills of the Program Coordinator.
The duties of a Program Coordinator are many. Following is a list of the duties and responsibilities that may be expected of the Coordinator.
- The main liaison between the Volunteer Board and the Law Enforcement community
- Deals with the tipsters, and then works with the investigators to ensure the tip is followed up and properly handled.
- Deals with media personnel to ensure the reenactments, crime of the week, and fugitive programs are handled correctly, as well as publicized properly.
- Writes scripts, obtains locations, and people to produce the reenactment.
- Writes the script for the Crime of the Week, and gives voice bites to the radio stations.
- Presents cases to the Board of Directors for payments.
- Fields calls regarding the operation of the program, and explains how funding is provided.
- Assists the Board of Directors with any project they are involved with when time permits.
- Makes presentations to civic groups, schools, and any other people who ask for a speaker. The rule we like to impress on all Coordinators, is that presentations are to be made as a team, a member of the Board accompanied by the Coordinator.
- Compiles all statistics for the program.
- Works with all other programs in the community to promote a positive relationship between Crime Stoppers and the community.
- Maintains security of the TIPS, and ensure the anonymity of each caller.
- Deals with other Crime Stopper programs on a local, national, and international level.
- Spokesperson for the program.
- The Programs Coordinator IS NOT a voting member of the Board of Directors.
