About our Program

In 1983 an idea was started at the Victoria Police Department by then Chief Kenneth Rosenquest. With the assistance of the Victoria Chamber of Commerce Crossroads Crime Stoppers officially began in February of 1984.  The original Police Coordinator at that time was Sgt. Larry Luna with the Victoria Police Department.

Crossroads Crime Stoppers legally changed their name to Victoria Crime Stoppers in 1990 to help identify the program as being operated in Victoria, Texas.

In 2001 Sgt. Larry Luna retired from the Victoria Police Department and Detective Randy Duke took over the duties as Police Coordinator for Victoria Crime Stoppers.  He continued in this capacity until the Police Department elected to have a civilian coordinator for the program.

 In August 2005 Holly Sulak became the first civilian Crime Stoppers Coordinator for Victoria.  Holly did a good job as the coordinator just as Larry and Randy had, but by late 2007 it was obvious that some of the local awareness of the program had waned.  It was decided that a licensed Officer in uniform would naturally capture more of the public's attention and have a better chance to revive our local program.

In October 2007, the Police Department returned to having a licensed Officer as the Coordinator and assigned Detective Thomas Eisman. In September 2009 Senior Patrol Officer Chris Guerra with the Victoria Police Department Crime Prevention Unit stepped in to help with the weekly television,radio and Internet commercials, while Detective Eisman continued to handle the day to day operation of Crime Stoppers.

This arrangement stayed in place until August 2010when Detective John Luna was assigned to the position of Crime Stoppers Coordinator. Senior Patrol Officer Guerra continued to assist with the weekly television,radio and Internet commercials.

In September 2013 Detective Tanya Brown was assigned as the new Crime Stoppers Coordinator. She is working to promote the program and create new ways to capture the community’s attention. Brown is pleased to report since she has taken the position, tips have increased tremendously. We encourage people to visit the Victoria Police Department's Facebook and "like" their page, so you can receive updates on criminal activity in our community.
