A new Albuquerque Police Department program hopes to make school campuses across the city safer.
Monday, APD introduced Campus Crime Stoppers to St. Pius High School.
It’s similar to the department’s Crime Stoppers program, except it’s geared towards Albuquerque schools, public and private.
Students will be able to report violence, threats or suspicious activity.
School officials think it’s going to make a big difference.
“That’s one of the biggest things parents want to know is that when they send their children to school, their child is safe on the campus where they are,” said Catholic Schools Superintendent Susan Murphy and St. Pius Principal Barbara Rothweiler.
Students can make anonymous tips by calling 843-STOP or using the P3 Tips app.
APD says it’s working to get the program in all Albuquerque Public Schools.
