CAMPUS CRIME STOPPERS
Crime and violence can seriously disrupt a student's attempt to get what he or she deserves: a good education. It's not fair to let the bad elements in our society ruin someone's future. And a lot of students aren't putting up with it.
Campus Crime Stoppers is an integral part of the overall Charlotte-Mecklenburg Crime Stoppers program. Formed in 1993, the Charlotte-Mecklenburg Campus Crime Stoppers targets middle schools and high schools throughout the greater the Charlotte-Mecklenburg School System (CMS) and has a ten year history of effectiveness in providing a means for students to help make their own schools safer. Since inception Campus Crime Stoppers has been successful in helping remove weapons and drugs from our schools, as well as providing information that has resulted in solving crimes involving vandalism, assaults and threats to students.
Campus Crime Stoppers educates students on the importance of safety and security at school through posters, flyers, home room meetings, tee shirts and other materials that help promote awareness.
The Campus Crime Stoppers program has been extremely successful and has become a model for other community's crime stopper programs.
