This program strives to prevent crime on our middle and high school campuses. It is intended to be a proactive method of crime prevention as opposed to reactive. It offers students a tool, which enables them to report crimes while remaining anonymous.
How does it work/ How do I get paid?
Students call the Crimestoppers tip line at (336) 229-7100. They will need to identify themselves as a student. They will then be given an identification number, which begin with "s". The student should make sure to write the number down, so they do not forget it because this number is the only way they can collect their cash rewards or add additional information at a later time. (Information may also be given to the School Resource Officer assigned to their school if they prefer. The SRO will then secure an ID number for the student.)
The student(s) can receive cash rewards for information that aids in clearing a case and/or prevents criminal offenses from occurring. After a reasonable amount of time, students may contact Crimestoppers during normal business hours to determine if they are eligible for a reward. The Crimestoppers Board decides on the amount of the rewards, which are paid in the form of a check made out to "J. Doe" at a local bank which will cash the check. Students then use their "s" to pick up the check.
