Lyle Wohlers
Law Enforcement Luncheon

Each spring, Crime Stoppers honors all of the police officers that serve and protect the counties of Gilpin & Clear Creek Counties at the annual Lyle Wohlers Law Enforcement Luncheon. Every officer who serves in the counties are recognized and honored for his or her work to protect our community. In addition, one officer from each county is honored for going above and beyond the call of duty and presented with the Lyle Wohlers' Officer of the Year Award.

This prestigious award is in honor of Colorado State Patrol Technician Lyle Wohlers, who proudly served for 26 years in the Colorado State Patrol. Trooper Wohlers was brutally killed during a "routine" traffic stop near Georgetown, Colorado in 1992.

In addition to honoring the law enforcement officers who protect our communities, Crime Stoppers also recognizes businesses and citizens in the community who encourage and support the efforts to keep our communities safe and crime free.

This years luncheon will be hosted by the Black Hawk Police Department and the Gilpin Casino in Black Hawk, Colorado on May 04, 2011 at 12:00 p.m.

Crime Stoppers is asking local businesses and citizens to help us thank the officers who serve and protect our community by sponsoring the cost of a lunch for one or more officers. All contributions are tax deductible and can be made by clicking on the "Donation" button below.

We are also asking for nominations for Officer of the Year, Business of the Year and Citizen of the Year. Do you know someone who has went above and beyond to ensure that our communities remain safe? Let us know by nominating them. All nominations must be submitted by April 15, 2011.
