About Metro Richmond Crime Solvers

Our Organization

Metro Richmond Crime Stoppers is administered by a Board of Directors. The Board is made up of 30 volunteer directors and representatives of area law enforcement jurisdictions.

Our Police Coordinator is the Chief of Henrico County Police. Currently, he delegates that responsibility to Lt. C. J. Maurice. Lt. Maurice oversees the administration of presenting reward information and other details for the consideration of the Board of Directors.

The Coordinator’s responsibility specifically is to create for the Board a list of proposed rewards as case numbers only with no names, along with their justifications, from the various jurisdictions for Board approval.

The Public Relations face of the Board in radio, TV or print presentations is the responsibility of Detective Derrick Longoria, City of Richmond Police Department.
