Crime Stoppers and Friends for Life

Please take a moment to review the BISD Safety and Security website to learn about our safety programs, including Crime Stoppers and Friends For Life.

BISD knows that students see and hear things. A vital step in prevention is early identification of potential threats and intelligence gathering. In partnership with Tarrant County Crime Stoppers and Friends for Life, BISD provides students with a platform to submit anonymous tips. Students are encouraged to report information that is criminal, threatening, inappropriate, or potentially harmful on topics that may include:

Dating violence
Family violence/abuse
Gang activity
Sexual harassment
Suicidal thoughts

Students are able to anonymously submit tips through a phone app, at or by calling Crime Stoppers 817-469-8477.

Our students learned about these programs when Mrs. Alley visited their classes earlier this year, and they may come home with questions.

If you have questions, feel free to email or call our office.
