Report on CSI representation at the UNODC in Vienna
It's common knowledge that In May 2005, CSI was successful, following an application to the United Nations, in being granted a position as a non-governmental organisation (NGO) with special consultative status to work with the UN Office on Drugs and Crime.(UNODC) This supports the global mission of CSI in combination with similar efforts with the IACP, Interpol and Europol. The author of this document is currently Chair of the CSI UN committee.
Crime Stoppers International, Inc., the umbrella organisation for all Crime Stoppers programs in the world, has been granted Special Consultative Status by the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations.
The Special Consultative Status allows CSI to designate members of Crime Stoppers to serve as "non-governmental organisation" or "NGO" representatives to lend their expertise on matters being discussed at committee levels before resolutions are presented to the UN's General Assembly.
"This is a great honor for Crime Stoppers International and all Crime Stoppers programs around the world," said Steve Walrath of Beloit, Wisconsin, president of Crime Stoppers International.
"Crime Stoppers International has been a world leader in the fight against crime and we believe those who serve with Crime Stoppers in law enforcement and the volunteers from the business community and the media can contribute a wealth of experience to the United Nations, particularly in areas related to concerns of crime and the threat from terrorism," Walrath said.
"We expect to be working very closely with the UN's Office on Drugs and Crime which was established in 1997 and has been a global leader in the fight against illicit drugs and other international criminal activity."
