Marathon County Crime Stoppers
Campus Crime Stoppers Program
Introducing the New “P3 Tips” Mobile App
School Safety Program
Did you know that Crime Stoppers is also active in our area schools? Local school districts throughout the county participate in the Campus Crime Stoppers Program, which is an improved and expanded version of the very popular and highly successful Quick 50 Program. The program goal is to Stop, Solve and Prevent Crime, in an effort to promote school safety and maintain a safe learning environment for students and staff. Participating school districts include: Athens, DC Everest, Edgar, Marathon, Mosinee, Stratford and Wausau. The program exists in the middle school, junior and senior high levels.
Students Step Up
Students are encouraged to "step up and do the right thing" and take an active role in helping to keep their school safe. Students may report information about illegal or unsafe activity occurring at school, at school related events, or anywhere in the community. Students report feeling safe at their school knowing there is a secure way to report information while never having to reveal their identity. Students can make a difference!
How It Works
Students remain anonymous by reporting directly to Crime Stoppers via the P3 Tips App (which has been loaded onto the students Chromebook or IPad), calling the 24-hour Hotline, or sending a tip via web at our website. to speak to a trusted adult and remain confidential, students may report information directly to a school official or School Resource Officer. Once the tip is verified the student may be eligible for a cash reward.
Improved School Safety
Over the years student tips have resulted in the removal of a variety of contraband including knives, brass knuckles, firearms, alcohol, drugs and drug paraphernalia. Tips from students have solved crimes, prevented the sale of drugs, prevented suicides and, according to school authorities, thwarted a serious school incident where lives were threatened. School Administrators and Law Enforcement support and promote Campus Crime Stoppers, recognizing the program as an invaluable resource and effective means of helping to keep our schools and students safe.
