About our Program
Student Crime Stoppers of Amarillo program began in the summer of 1991. Our program started as a need to give the youth of Amarillo an anonymous way to report crime in their schools and community. Our program now operates as an independent 501(c)3 non-profit charitable organization. The concept has developed into a combination of efforts by local school districts, media, businesses, law enforcement agencies, and the public. With donations of airtime, newspaper space, social media, and reward monies have established as an effective tool to fight crime in our schools in Amarillo and surrounding areas. Currently Student Crime Stoppers operates in 5 local school districts covering approximately 47,000 students.
Student Crime Stoppers of Amarillo is comprised of a diverse, active and dedicated group of student aged youth from our surrounding school districts. Student Crime Stoppers provides a anonymous outlet for local law enforcement to receive information on crimes in our schools and community. These efforts increase tips, which in turn makes our community a safer place to live.
