Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers Law Enforcement Executive Director Ken Wilson elected state Crime Stoppers vice president
Ken Wilson, Executive Director of the four-county Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers now has an additional title: Vice President of the Florida Association of Crime Stoppers.

The election took place at the state group’s annual conference in Orlando last weekend.

Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers serves Indian River, Martin, St. Lucie and Okeechobee counties and their 14 law enforcement agencies by giving cash rewards for people whose crime tips lead to an arrest or recovery of property. Tipsters don’t have to give their names to be eligible for a reward by calling 1-800-273-TIPS (8477) or using the group’s web site http://www.tcwatch.org.

The group’s motto is: “Crime doesn’t pay, but we do.”

Wilson has been employed by the St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office since 2001when he began with the agency as a Victim’s Advocate.

In 2004 he was promoted to Program Coordinator of Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers.

In 2008 he was again promoted to Executive Director by the program’s Board of Directors. 

Since 2004 Treasure Coast Crime Stoppers tips and arrests have soared. Tips increased more than 100 percent, with arrests from those tips growing by 300 percent.   

Wilson has more than 21 years in the field of law enforcement and is a retired Connecticut State Trooper.
