Students who step forward with anonymous tips leading to arrests will be eligible for cash awards through our program, just like anyone else.
School and police officials agree that a majority of students want to do the right thing to keep their schools and neighborhoods safe. However, sometimes the fear reprisal from their peers can keep them from telling someone when they have information about a crime that has occurred or will occur. For this reason, the Portsmouth Crime Line has become a great tool for our youth to report what they know to the proper authorities. The Portsmouth Crime Line Program offers the safety of complete anonymity while promoting responsibility by allowing students to take action against victimization and crime in their schools and their communities.
