Plays a role in school violence
Campus Crime Stoppers can play a vital role in combating violence and other crimes by eliminating student’s lack of concern, fear of retaliation, and knowing their information is confidential. Most importantly, it teaches students that they too share responsibility for the security of their schools and the well-being of their classmates.
