Cleveland – Cuyahoga County Sheriff Cliff Pinkney and Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County appoint retired Warrensville Heights Police Chief William (Bill) Jelenic as the New Crime Stoppers of Cuyahoga County Coordinator. Jelenic served as Warrensville Heights Police Chief for more than four years, and has been a police officer since 1983, before retiring as Chief in 2014. He has served on numerous task forces, in the Detective Bureau and as a Prosecutor’s Office Special Investigator in the CODIS Cold Case Unit and Sexual Assault Kit Initiative Task Forces.

Crime Stoppers encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and apathy. Crime Stoppers provides a telephone, text and web tip contact to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies to fight against crime. Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender. Crime Stoppers relies on tax deductible contributions from the public to operate the program.

“I have worked with Bill for many years,’ said Sheriff Cliff Pinkney. “His dedication to solving crimes, assisting victims and making our community safer each day will serve the citizens of Cuyahoga County well. We look forward to Bill leading Crime Stoppers and to even more success in solving criminal activity in and around Cuyahoga County.”
