Fundraising Information - Silent Observer

David & Vivian Bouwman Reward Fund

Silent Observer has been asked to administer a reward fund for information leading to the arrest of the suspect(s) responsible for the homicide of David and Vivian Bouwman, January 5, 2013.  Many community members have indicated an interest in donating to this reward fund so you may do so by filling out the form below.

The main focus of Silent Observer is to allow those with information about crime the opportunity to report that information anonymously. What is significant is that murderers, rapists, drug dealers and burglars who spend their life causing trouble for others, have been removed from our streets and neighborhoods because of calls to Silent Observer.  There have been thousands of success stories over the past 40 years with tips to Silent Observer leading police to arrest criminals who have hurt our friends, family or neighbors.  Our neighborhoods are much safer when people decide to pick up the phone and report their information about crime.  Truly the whole community is impacted by crime and the whole community benefits when a criminal is put behind bars.
