AlliedBarton Security Services recently donated $150,000 to support the Crime Stoppers Program of the New York City Police Department. This year marks AlliedBarton’s second installment of $50,000 on its total three-year pledge of $150,000. The Crime Stoppers Unit operates a hotline that allows anyone with important information about a violent crime in New York to provide information anonymously.
“Crime Stoppers is one of the best examples of a successful public-private partnership,” said Lawrence Loesch, Vice President/General Manager of AlliedBarton Security Services New York City region. “With the public’s help, it has solved over 4,300 violent crimes including some of the city’s most violent and high-profile cases. Our streets are safer today because of the men and women of the NYPD and its leadership. AlliedBarton is honored to contribute to this important program and we encourage other New York City corporations to contribute to this noble and highly effective organization.”
“To ensure the anonymity of callers and maintain rewards, Crime Stoppers cannot be funded through traditional police resources making AlliedBarton’s support crucial,” said Pamela D. Delaney, President and Chief Executive Officer, the New York City Police Foundation. “Private funding from corporations, as well as individuals and foundations, helps assure that criminals get the message that while crime doesn’t pay, Crime Stoppers does!”
