Pasco schools, Sheriff's Office join Campus Crime Stoppers



If Pasco County school students have a problem with bullies, or hear of something illegal going on at school, they now have a safe, anonymous way to alert authorities.

Pasco schools superintendent Heather Fiorentino and Sheriff Bob White today announced that the county has joined a growing list of communities participating in Campus Crime Stoppers.

Campus Crime Stoppers works like the adult version. Students with information about a crime that is going to occur or is occurring at a school, can call. Crime Stoppers will take the information and pass it on to the school resource officer to take action. Each student that provides information that leads to an arrest is eligible for a cash reward.

To contact Crime Stoppers, students can call 1-800-873-8477, report online at, or text to C-R-I-M-E-S (274637) keyword CSTB.
