Ike Students Helping Fight Crime

The student lead Crime Stoppers program at Yakima’s Eisenhower High School is a huge success and an model for other schools says the President of Yakima County Crimestoppers.

Dave Purcell says Eisenhower was the first school in the state to start the program in 2010 and ever since it has made a huge impact.

Purcell tells KIT News that even though they pay rewards, “a lot of the rewards have never been picked up simply because they just want a safer and better school climate.”

Purcell says it is a simple program that is now being expanded to other schools around the valley and the state. The kids are given a text number to the school resource officer and can text the number anonymously to report a problem.

The program is now in operation in other school districts in the valley including Selah and West Valley school districts but is seeing the most success at Eisenhower High School.
