Campus Crime Stoppers provides students with a safe, informal, and anonymous system to give information about criminal activity, threats, or weapons, without fear of retaliation. If you have information about a crime committed at your school, or about threats of a crime or possible shooting, call the 24-Hour Campus Crime Stoppers Tips line at 843-STOP or text “APD” + your tip to 274637.
How Does It Work?
If you are a student, parent, teacher or other school staff member, you can call 843-STOP or text “APD” + your tip to 274637 with information about crimes in and around your school. No one will ask for your name, just for your information.
What Sort Of Crimes Should I Call About?
Anything! We are interested in any crime that happens in and around your school. Drugs, drinking, graffiti, vandalism, burglary, weapons, and gang activity are all crimes that affect your safety and ability to learn. We are also interested in threats of violence, even if they are only rumors. Information you provide us can help make your school a better place.
What Happens To The Information I Give To Campus Crime Stoppers?
When you call or text our Tipsline, the information you provide is given to a police officer for investigation. The officer may get help from your school’s police officer.
What Happens If The Information I Give Is Wrong?
All information received is validated by Law Enforcement prior to any action being taken.
Can someone go to jail because of me?
No. The information will be used as part of an investigation. No one is ever arrested based only on tip information.
Do I Get A Reward?
If a crime is solved, if a criminal is arrested, or if a weapon is confiscated because of a tip you gave to Campus Crime Stoppers, you are eligible for a reward.
How Much Is The Reward?
Rewards range from $10 to $1,000. The Crime Stoppers Board meets every month to decide the amount paid for each successful tip.
If I Don’t Give My Name, How Do I Collect My Reward?
Every person who calls the Tipsline or texts a tip is given a code number. If your tip leads to an arrest, confiscation of a weapon, or the solution of a crime, you will receive a reward. When you call or text Crime Stoppers and give your code number you will be told how to collect your reward – without ever giving your name!
