By guaranteeing a caller's anonymity Hays CISD Campus Crime Stoppers allows the caller to give information in a positive, anonymous atmosphere without the prospect of retribution. By offering cash rewards for information leading to arrests, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information.
Calls are received at the Hays County Crime Stoppers tips line (1-800-324-8477). This phone line does not provide caller ID, and conversations are not recorded. The Crime Stopper Law Enforcement Coordinator/SRO receiving the information completes the tip information form, makes initial inquiries and then passes the information to the appropriate campus/officer.
