WHEN it comes to Crime Stoppers volunteer numbers, Warwick is leading the rest of the state - and it hasn't gone without recognition.

With 35 volunteers on the committee, and bucket loads of passion from all, Warwick was awarded the area achievement award for all their efforts and outstanding achievements in the community.

Crime Stoppers state operations manager Jonathon Cowley said he was thrilled with the Warwick crew's efforts.

"Warwick is leading the charge in volunteers, they're out there doing things and getting our message across and it's fantastic," Mr Cowley said.

Members of the committee were also awarded individual awards.

Max Holder was recognised for five years service, Jo McNally for one year, Pam Ritchie for one year, Keith Ritchie for one year and Cameron Schoenfisch was awarded for his outstanding contribution.

"I am pleased to receive it, it does make me feel a little proud," Mr Schoenfisch said.

"I want to thank all the excellent members for their support and for making it all possible.

"I couldn't do it without this team."

Despite the committee's applaudable volunteers, they are still on the hunt for more.

If you're a business which would like to support Crime Stoppers, they are also searching for people who would like to sport one of their newly made signs on their building.

If this is you, give Mr Schoenfisch a call on 0413 481 299.
