The Christian County Crimestoppers board recently took time during their December board meeting to honor retiring board member Dan Austin. Austin along with his father helped create the Crimestoppers program in Christian County in 1987. Sergeant Alan Mills with the Taylorville Police Department and Christian County Crimestoppers said how Dan and his Father helped get the program going, and why the board decided to honor him.
Mills discussed how Austin helped the program grow over the years, and how those involved in the Crimestoppers program appreciate everything Austin has done for Crimestoppers.
Austin was given an award by the Christian County Crimestoppers during the meeting to help show their gratitude for helping to not only create, but to expand and grow the local program.
