The Northeast Texas Area Crime Stoppers is happy to announce partnerships with the following school districts in Northeast Texas:
We are looking forward over the next couple of weeks and months in coordinating information and putting on presentations to teach administrators how our program works. We look forward to working with all the administrators, Police Departments, Sheriff's Departments and School Resource Officers to make this a huge success.
With the addition of the Text a Tip and Web Tip software, it is even easier for students, teachers, parents and employees of the school to make an anonymous tip.
Students who step forward with anonymous tips leading to arrests will be eligible for cash awards through the program, based on an internally recognized model.
School and police officials agree that most students want to do the right thing to keep their schools and neighborhoods safe but sometimes fear reprisals. The Student Crime Stoppers Program offers the safety of complete anonymity while promoting responsibility and allowing students to take action against victimization and crime.
When to Call
If you aren't sure that what you saw or heard is really a crime, call anyway. Let the police decide if it's worth investigating. It may be a piece of a clue to a big crime.
