Annotation: Canada's first postsecondary school Crime Stoppers Program has been launched at the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT).
Abstract: Known as Campus Crime Stoppers, the program is intended to positively affect the student body which includes about 40,000 full-time, apprentice, and continuing education students. The program is aimed at high school and junior high school students. Since Campus Crime Stoppers has been launched, NAIT staff and students are preparing for a major awareness campaign, and a student board has been established to handle daily program operations. The program follows certain steps: student calls the student line to report a crime; calls are received and information is recorded on a 24-hour basis; information is passed to NAIT security, and each tip is investigated; and consequences are imposed on the perpetrator(s) once the investigation is complete.
