Final $10,000 for citizen with info in 2011 officer death investigation | Community Spirit
St. Petersburg, Florida-- The citizen who provided information in the 2011 investigation of Officer David Crawford's death will receive the final $10,000 of the $100,000 promised reward after Chief of Police, Charles "Chuck" Harmon, accepts the money on the person's behalf.
According to the St. Pete Police Department, Chief Harmon will meet with Joseph Occhipinti, the Founder and Executive Director of the National Police Defense Foundation, tomorrow to except the $10,000 for the citizen, whose identity remains confidential.
The citizen provided crucial information in the investigation of the death of Officer David Crawford on February 21, 2011, and Nicholas Lindsay was convicted of the crime.
Officials say the National Police Defense Foundation provided this reward as part of their "Safe Cop" program, which is a congressionally recognized law enforcement initiative that posts up to a $10,000 reward for public information leading to the arrest and conviction of any person who shoots at a law enforcement officer, anywhere in the United States.
