Crime Stoppers Atlanta and Atlanta Public Schools to Launch Campus Crime Stoppers
Crime, Schools

Atlanta, GA--  Atlanta Public Schools, in partnership with Crime Stoppers Atlanta, will launch a new crime fighting program aimed at getting high school students and their parents involved in the crime prevention effort.

The new program encourages students, parents, school-based faculty and staff to proactively report crimes and criminal activity to the Crime Stoppers Atlanta organization through the group’s Web site, by text message or by telephone.  Tipsters have the option of remaining anonymous, and cash rewards are provided to those whose information leads to an arrest and indictment.

Campus Crime Stoppers will be launched at a news conference at 10 a.m. Tuesday, September 28, 2010 at Douglass High School, 225 H.E. Holmes Dr., NW Atlanta 30318.  Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed, Atlanta Police Chief George Turner, Atlanta Board of Education Vice Chair Yolanda Johnson, Crime Stoppers Atlanta and Atlanta Police Foundation officials are scheduled to participate in the event.
