    Citizens Crime Commission of the Delaware Valley - TipLineFor several years the Commission has striven to implement its CAMPUS CRIMEBUSTERS program in schools throughout the Delaware Valley. We recognized the grave potential for devastating disruption to the education of our young people that might result from school related crime. Unfortunately, it took the disasters at Columbine High and Jonesboro, Arkansas to focus the world’s attention on this problem. However, those tragedies created an atmosphere of interest for information about the CAMPUS CRIMEBUSTERS program. We first installed the program in a Bucks County school. A $1,000 reward was offered for information leading to the arrest of the person responsible for repeated bomb threats against the District. Within 24 hours of broadcast of the reward on TV, the perpetrator was in police custody. A juvenile, he was sentenced to Boot Camp and his parents were invoiced for the emergency response costs. We now have over 200 schools involved in the program, and receive inquiries on a daily basis. Bringing safety and reassurance to Delaware Valley school children and school staff helps to foster an improved educational environment which benefits everyone for years to come. HOW IT WORKS We are in partnership with WPVI-TV6 in the Delaware Valley. WPVI reports crimes on the CRIMEFIGHTERS report on Tuesdays at 11 PM and repeats it on Wednesdays at 5 PM. Calls are taken by trained operators, and always with the callers safety at the top of the list. We take pride in our anonymity guarantee. We at the Commission want to make a difference by helping law enforcement, but NOT at our callers expense. When a caller calls the TIPLINE at 215-546-TIPS (8477) operators will ask questions pertaining to the crime. If it was reported on WPVI-TV6, the operator will probably be familiar with the case. If the information was not previously given, or can add to the case, the caller will receive a seven digit code number and may qualify for a reward if one is posted on that particular crime. At no time will the operator ask for the callers name, phone number or address. Remember, YOU MUST CALL THE COMMISSION’S TIPLINE TO QUALIFY FOR REWARDS!!
