Bicycling Group Teams With Silent Observer of Kalamazoo

Aug. 19, 2017.  An anonymous donor has contributed $500 to establish a fund to help local law enforcement solve serious crimes against bicyclists. Inspired to do something positive in the wake of a hit and run incident involving a motorist and a group of bicyclists in Alamo Township last November, the donation was symbolically presented on Saturday to Silent Observer, in the name of Bike Friendly Kalamazoo.  Silent Observer representatives Jeff Getting and Norm Seiler accepted the donation from Bike Friendly Kalamazoo founder, Paul Selden.


“Kalamazoo is a community with an ever-growing number of cyclists.  Whether we are riding for recreation, fitness, or transportation, cyclists are often at risk while sharing the roads.  The partnership between Bike Friendly Kalamazoo and Silent Observer brings together the cycling community and law enforcement.  It will help to hold accountable those drivers who fail to exercise necessary caution while sharing the roads.  I applaud the volunteers from both of these organizations for the work they are doing to make Kalamazoo strong,” remarked Jeff Getting.


“Improving public safety takes teamwork,” stated Paul Selden.  “Our partnership with Silent Observer strengthens that effort through enhanced public awareness. A small piece of information might help save someone’s life.”





Silent Observer encourages members of the community to assist local law enforcement agencies in the fight against crime by overcoming the two key elements that inhibit community involvement: fear and lack of interest.

Silent Observer provides a telephone hotline and web tip page  to encourage citizens in the community to volunteer vital information helpful to law enforcement agencies in their crime-fighting efforts.   In addition, Silent Observer can receive  text messages which enables Silent Observer and the tipster to communicate back and forth anonymously.

Callers can remain anonymous and are eligible to receive a cash reward if the information given leads to an arrest and conviction, or grand jury indictment, of a felony offender.

Silent Observer relies on volunteer Directors and tax deductible contributions from the public in order to operate the administration of the program.
