Community-Based Counter-Terrorism Program
The Crime Stoppers of Houston Community-Based Counter-Terrorism Program focuses on educating the community at large about terrorism, including international and domestic threats, and encourages citizens to report terroristic threats anonymously to the Crime Stoppers of Houston Tip Line at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
It will take the engagement of an entire community that knows ideologies, recognizes indicative signs, and communicates effectively to protect our city from terroristic threats – both children and adults, school staff and law enforcement.
Oftentimes, the opportunity to neutralize extremist behavior before it turns violent occurs at school-age. Whether a student makes threats to their school jokingly or angrily, it is still considered a criminal offense. Student presentations ensure that students know the repercussion of their actions, recognize indicators of dangerous behavior in other students, and understand when and where to take their concerns.
