Chamber Heard Tips For Safety & Helping Police
For Business & Individuals
The Crime Commission is a non-profit, private organization of concerned citizens who believe that individual action can help stop crime. Moreover, the Crime Commission members believe that individuals have a responsibility to themselves and their community to be involved in crime prevention.

An outgrowth of the Criminal Justice Task Force created by the Metropolitan Tulsa Chamber of Commerce in the 1970’s, the Metropolitan Tulsa Citizens Crime Commission was incorporated in 1971 and later changed its name to Crime Commission, Inc. in 2004.

Some of their core programs:
* Alert Neighbors
* Arrest Arson
* Citizens Alert Patrol
* Crime Stoppers (596-COPS) / Spanish Line (596-7000)
* Gangs Advisory Council
* Safe Escape

Carol Bush

Carol Bush and Officer Scott Walton spoke to the gathering of the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce Thursday Aug. 2nd, 2007 at the Library. They offered common sense tips to plan ahead and be aware of your situation to stay as safe as possible at work and home. Lighting, cameras, phones, buddy systems, safety meetings, self defense classes, reporting suspicious activity to police, were just a few of the topics covered.

The Crime Commission covers a 17-county area in NE Oklahoma. They help raise funds for rewards for those helping to solve crimes. They provide the "Safe Escape" program to elementary school kids.
