Leaders with our local Crime Solvers are preparing to get more students involved in their mission.
Crime Solvers already has a crime line program at Handley High School and now they're including middle school students.
The idea is to get the kids accustomed to doing the right thing and also introduce them to crime prevention and police work.
They can call anonymously to Crime Solvers to report something they see at school.
Organizers say anything to make schools a safer place is a positive step.
Crime Solvers of Winchester/Frederick/Clarke President, Jim Pearce, says, "It's a great thing to have an outlet. If somebody sees something and they want to report it and it gets to Crime Solvers and it goes right in and it usually goes right to a police officer or to whatever police agency handles where that is. In fact, when a tip is called in, they ask if it's coming from a school."
Pearce says they will begin the process of starting the crime line at Daniel Morgan Middle School on Wednesday.
