Attorney General

Dear Mr. Smith,

I am writing on behalf of the Crime Stoppers Association of Washington
(C-SAW) and it’s member programs throughout the State and Crime Stoppers
International (CSI).

We will be traveling to your beautiful Country, arriving on Sunday February
11, 2000 at or about 3:44 P.M. for a holiday. We will be in Belize in a variety
of cities until we depart on Monday the 19th. As it has been a custom of mine

of Police, Steve Harris, the directory listed a contact in law enforcement from

I would like very much to meet with your office or the Criminal Justice
office and /or Mr. Brooks and leave a copy of the materials I am bringing with
me that describe what Crime Stoppers is and how it operates.

I want to establish proper protocol so please advise me how I may proceed. I
will bring with me letters of introduction from the President of CSI and the
Sheriff of King County (Seattle, Washington, USA), police authorities. I am a
retired police officer from New Orleans and now work in the private sector. I
donate my time to crime Stoppers on an international, national and municipal
level. My last trip abroad to foster the growth of CSI was to FIJI.

I look forward to hearing from you.


Ron Conlin, C-SAW President
