Crimestoppers Expands Program To Tulsa Schools

Law enforcement says students should worry about chemistry grades, not crime in schools.

Monday, Tulsa Police officers unveiled the Student Crimestoppers program to Webster High School. Officials say similar programs across the nation have helped prevent school shootings and minimize violence.

Executive director of the Crime Commission Carol Bush: "bringing weapons to school seems to be a very big issue, not only in Tulsa County, but nationwide. The other thing is drugs, sales of drugs."

This week, officers will present the program to all Tulsa Public High Schools and Union High School. By next year all middle and high schools in Tulsa County will have it.

Tulsa's Crimestoppers is the most successful in the nation, with close to 80-percent of all tip calls resulting in an arrest.
