Through the existing Campus Crime Stoppers system, students can help other students who are victims of:
- Cyber Bullying
- Dating Violence / Abuse
- Family Violence / Abuse
- Gang Activity
- Suicidal Tendencies
- Sexual Harassment on Campus or by Another Youth
By using the same procedure for reporting a Crime Stoppers tip, students may report incidents of victimization. When a tipster submits a tip by phone or text, he or she is provided with a status number and instructed to call back at a later time to find out if he or she is eligible for a reward. This branch of the Campus Crime Stoppers program is called Friends For Life, and as with Crime Stoppers, tipsters’ names are kept completely anonymous. One call could provide help by a counselor or interventionist for a student in need.
A Friends For Life call that provides accurate information about someone in need pays a $25 reward to the tipster, but the true reward is in helping others get their lives back on track.
