Crime Stoppers app discussed at Paris High School

An assembly was conducted Tuesday at Paris High School with Paris Police Department Officer Curtis Garrett and Paris ISD Safety and Se­curity Department Officer Joey McCarthy.  Students acted out several scenes depicting bullying and then a tool was discussed to help combat the potential hazards portrayed.Students learned how to download a free app called “Tip Submit”. By submitting a TIP through this app, the Tipster remains completely anon­ymous. The App is available for both Apple and Android.”The protection of complete anonymity makes it easier for students to report problems,” said Principal Chris Vaughn. “Some students will tell teachers, but some of them aren’t sure. So they can anonymously report this way, and then Crime Stoppers can follow up on it and take action.”Just like the Adult Crime Stoppers program, an anonymous TIP that leads to an arrest or disciplinary action is eligible for a reward through the PHS Campus Crime Stoppers program. All rewards are delivered anonymously.
