Text-a-Tip is offered in traditional high schools in Douglas County, Castle Rock, Parker, Elizabeth and Elbert County. If students see someone selling drugs, bullying or threatening to hurt themselves or others, they can now tell deputies about it immediately and anonymously at Text-a-Tip. Once the tipster had texted the sheriff’s office, they receive a confidential code which lets them add more information later.
Courageous students who used Text-a-Tip over a five-year period from 2009-2014, helped save the lives of 13 students.
