About our Program

Mohawk Valley Crime Stoppers began in 2015 from the efforts of Executive Director Jim Glorioso. Jim had learned about the Crime Stoppers program in 2014 while working in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The program was literally part of the Tulsa Police Dept. and had highly successful results in solving crimes. When he returned to NY, he realized that there were no Crime Stoppers Programs in Central NY. Jim decided to start the program and the rest is history. Jim Wife, Courtney, an Oklahoma native, was proud to support his efforts in beginning the program. She grew up around the program and knew the potential. Along the way Jim assembled a top notch board of Directors from business leaders from all over the Mohawk Valley. Together, them aim at making the community safe.

Mission Statement
