***Gunstoppers is a program for students in which School Resource Officers discuss with students on how to anonymously provide information about guns and weapons on campuses. The student in turns will receives up to 500 if a weapon is located on campus even if there is no arrest. 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.
