Campus Crime Stoppers

Des Moines Public Schools is working with Polk County Crime Stoppers, Des Moines Police Department and the Polk County Sheriffs Office on an initiative called Campus Crime Stoppers.  

The program allows students to anonymously notify law enforcement of potential issues at schools.

Students may provide anonymous notifications in one of three ways:

  1. Call the toll free number at 1-800-452-1111 
  2. Submit an on-line tip through www.polkcountycrimestoppers.org 
  3. Send a tip by text to 274637 (in the body of the text you must first type PCCS followed by a space and the name of the school from where the text is coming, and then details of the tip)

This program begin in the Spring of 2013.  It will be publicized again to each individual school with the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year.
