Crime Stoppers' app targets trouble at schools
Crime Stoppers of Tangipahoa and the Tangipahoa Parish School System are pleased to announce the P3 Tips Safe School initiative program for the 2020-21 school year.
The program includes the creation of two instructional videos directed by Tangipahoa Parish teachers, Julie White and Charley Vance. The performers were TPSS Sumner middle Students; Mariah Robertson, Matelyn Titus, Emilee King and Macy Chauvin and Hammond High Magnet School students; Rayna Myers, Heese White, Hannah Davis, Abigail LeSaicherre, Neela White, Whyatt Beachy, Gage Ridgel, Cohen Troxclair, Jorden Mareno, Morgan Duncan- Production Assistant Director, acting out situations of bullying and threats of violence. At the end of the videos, students illustrate how to use the P3 app.
P3 is an anonymous tip reporting system and is a vital tool in keeping schools and students safe. Students can report about a wide range of concerns, from mental health issues to threats of violence through the P3 app or through the Crime Stoppers website. Tips are delivered to multiple school administrators and law enforcement making sure nothing slips through the cracks. The P3 mobile app can be downloaded to iPhone or android devices. Tips can also be submitted from a computer at the website: https://www.p3tips.com/Drill.aspx
Crime Stoppers Safe School committee is grateful for the assistance of Dr. Byron Hurst and Dr. Beth Moulds with this project and Cecilia Lanier for providing the funding through the Title IV Safe and Drug Free Schools program. Special thanks to Vivid Productions for expediting the production of the videos.
