Increasing Safety In Our Schools

The Quick 50 program is Winnebago CountyWide Crime Stoppers most successful. Each school year it pays out between $1,800.00 to $2,400.00 to students who report violations in school or on school property. This program is currently in all public middle and high schools in Winnebago County and some private ones, and is currently reaching 14,000 students. A $50.00 cash reward is paid to students who provide information that is determined to be legitimate and leads to an arrest. They can provide this information through a Crime Stoppers reporting system, which is then passed on to the school or by contacting the police liaison officer assigned to their school. In cases where there is no liaison officer, a teacher or counselor is assigned. The $50.00 cash reward is paid to the student by the police liaison officer at the school or a method chosen by the tipster. It is our intent to increase safety in our schools by encouraging students to report weapons, drugs, alcohol, bomb threats, bullying, as well as cyber bullying.

Submit a Tip

Students with information may talk with their school’s Police Liaison Officer. The information will be kept confidential.

Students may also submit tips using the Winnebago CountyWide Crime Stoppers web tip line, P3 App or by calling 920-231-TIPS(8477), although these tips will not be part of the Quick 50 program, they are still eligible for rewards if requirements are fulfilled.

The schools are a safer place for kids to learn thanks to tips from the Quick 50 program.
