Crime Alert Berks County to "Race Against Crime"
Crime Alert Berks County, the No. 1 crime stoppers organization in Pennsylvania, is encouraging law enforcement officers to speed. No, Crime Alert, whose mission is to solve crime through anonymous tips and make Berks a safer county, is not encouraging officers to break the law. It's encouraging them to have fun - and, in the process, raise money for their favorite charity.

On Thursday, Aug. 13, Crime Alert will sponsor its first "Race Against Crime," from 6 to 8 p.m., at Slick Willy's Karts & Eats, 1109 Bern Road, Wyomissing. Chris Nein, Crime Alert vice president and "race director," the idea for the event was family-inspired.

"My kids go there and I think it is a beautiful facility," Nein said. "And I thought it would a neat thing to do - to have police officers do the racing and have it be a Crime Alert event." Participants in the race - or, more accurately, races - are limited to the ranks of law enforcement. To date, registrants include members of the Berks County Sheriff's Office, the Pennsylvania State Police, and the Wyomissing, West Reading, Amity, Shillington, Northern Berks Regional, Shillington, Bern, Spring, Fleetwood, and Exeter police departments, and Berks County detectives. Most are active officers; some retired. They will compete in seven heats. The winner of each heat will progress to the eighth championship heat. The champion will earn the right to direct $1,000 in winnings to his or her charity of choice and will also receive a trophy. A total of 56 slots are open; more than 30 have been filled to date.

"I believe this event will create more community fellowship with police and more awareness for Crime Alert," said Nein. Registration is open through the day of the event, said Nein. For registration forms, call Nein at 610-376-1755 or e-mail him at Tickets for the Race Against Crime are free, but donations are encouraged to help Crime Alert defray some costs. Tickets are available by calling Nein at 610-376-1755 or e-mailing him at There will be food, cash bar, and entertainment provided by Stand Tall Baby Doll, a popular headliner band with a regional following that has performed the Atlantic City casino circuit.
