The Safe School Program of Denton County Crime Stoppers is a program to expand Crime Stoppers operations, encouraging students to remain totally anonymous when reporting school crime. The program has no impact on taxpayers and relies on the collaboration of law enforcement, media, teachers, and students to provide a flow of information about crime and criminal activity.

Let’s continue to help them help law enforcement. Crime Stoppers pays up to $1,000 cash on tips leading to the arrest of an individual — and you remain anonymous!
