Supporting Our Schools
School is a place where students learn, grow, and thrive. Johnson County Crime Stoppers is committed to helping students make their schools a positive environment so that they can reach their goals. Partnering with our schools in Johnson County is one more way we feel we can make safety a priority for our students.
Students Can Make a Difference
Students play a critical role in school safety. Many times, students know more about what is happening on campus than teachers, administrators, or parents. Crime Stoppers provides students with a way to anonymously report crime and dangerous activities taking place in their school. Students can contact Johnson County Crime Stoppers by phone, text, or web tip. We will pass that information on to authorities directly.
Speak Up for a Safe School
We are proud of our schools and want to see local young people achieve their dreams. The Crime Stoppers program promotes school spirit, pride and responsibility and allows students to take action against victimization and crime in their school. By using your voice to make your school and community safer, you can make a difference.
Students who step forward with anonymous tips leading to disciplinary action or arrests will be eligible for cash awards through the program, based on an internally recognized model. This is a way for students to report incidents to law enforcement without being targeted as a "tattle tail" or "snitch".
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.
All rewards are funded by Johnson County Crime Stoppers, at no cost to the police department, sheriff's office or the school district. Currently, this program pays out several hundred dollars in cash rewards each month to middle school and high school students.
