Crime Stoppers 2017 Recognition Dinner

Ford Motor Company to Host Crime Stoppers Recognition Dinner!

Southeast, MI – Ford Motor Company is the 2017 Host Sponsor for Crime Stoppers of Michigan’s Annual Recognition Dinner.  Crime Stoppers empowers people in our region to take an active role in reducing crime by implementing “grass roots” programming, by publicizing crimes, and providing its anonymous tip line (1-800-SPEAKUP). Burt Jordan, Vice President Global Vehicle and Powertrain Purchasing & Supplier Diversity is the chairman of this year’s event.

Crime Stoppers is asking you to become a sponsor to support an exceptional evening and worthy cause. Please consider the importance of Crime Stoppers to our region, businesses and families as you determine your level of involvement.


Here are a few event highlights:

  • The event will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m., Tuesday, October 3rd at the Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation. Attendees will have the opportunity (before and after dinner) to network in this most inspiring setting!
  • The VIP reception for Business, Presenting, Presenting Plus and Title sponsors will begin at 5:30 p.m. followed by a general reception at 6 p.m.
  • The funds raised during the evening will go to support Crime Stoppers of Michigan and its mission.


All of our efforts toward safer neighborhoods within our seven county service areas would not be possible without the generous support of our sponsors, law enforcement partners, corporate friends of Crime Stoppers and individual supporters. We cannot thank them enough for being such an important part of what we do.

Crime Stoppers of Michigan provides an alternative to silence for our neighbors who have information regarding criminal activity but feel insecure to share that information. There are a number of reasons that a person may be afraid to speak out or may be reluctant to contact law enforcement directly. Whatever that reason may be, Crime Stoppers offers a safe and secure option that empowers residents to do the right thing.

Your financial support enables us to continue expanding the reach of our programs, empowering residents, strengthening communities, and sharing critical information with our law enforcement partners to solve criminal cases and keep our neighborhoods safe.

If you would like to become a sponsor or have additional questions, please contact Colleen Thomas at 313-922-5000, ext. 110.
