Darlene Cusanza is president and CEO of CRIMESTOPPERS. CRIMESTOPPERS is an international organization; our local CRIMESTOPPERS was founded in 1981. According to Darlene, CRIMESTOPPERS in New Orleans is very much a grassroots organization that receives little funding from big corporations. She describes how CRIMESTOPPERS works and explains how the identity of those who assist CRIMESTOPPERS is never known, not even to CRIMESTOPPERS itself.

Darlene is excited about the organization's first annual fun run/walk on Saturday, Sept. 22. You can get more information about the race and learn how to support this organization that is so vital to community safety at crimestoppersgno.org. Listen to the interview here
