Crime Stoppers of Racine County

Offers New Scholastic Crime Stoppers Program

 

Why Scholastic Crime Stoppers

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.

The focus of the program is to reduce drugs, weapons, and alcohol being brought onto school property by paying a reward for accurate information. We also encourage students to report knowledge of criminal activity that has taken place in the community.

When to Call

  • Maybe you overhear someone bragging about having committed a crime.
  • Perhaps you know of someone bringing drugs or weapons onto school property, or is planning to do this.
  • Maybe you know someone who is driving a stolen car...or is hiding from the police...or is a robber or drug dealer.
  • Or maybe you just see something that doesn't look right. A strange car. A person acting sneaky. Someone with a gun or knife.
  • Perhaps you witness a situation where a student is bullying another student in or out of school.

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.
