Crime Stoppers and Hopkins County Schools Consider Partnership to Prevent Bullying, Drugs, Violence

crimestoppers hopkins2 300MADISONVILLE, Ky. (3/20/14) - Lt. William Poe, coordinator of Hopkins County Crime Stoppers, presented an idea to the Hopkins County Board of Education Monday to merge the tip line with the existent online program, STOP, to reduce bullying, violence and drug use in schools.

Poe said that the goal of the partnership is to enhance both programs inside schools helping kindergarten through twelfth grade.

Students, faculty, and employees could log on to a website and be able to anonymously report "anything that smells foul", from bullying to feeling ostracized to drug use, says Poe.

"It's all about protecting our kids," said Tim Thomas, president of Hopkins County Crime Stoppers.

The Madisonville Police Department usually rewards tippers to Crime Stoppers with money, but MPD proposed to instead give funding to Hopkins County Schools.

The program will be voted upon in a future Hopkins County Board of Education meeting.
