The Crime Stoppers in Schools program in Sedgwick County has created the Speak Up! program, which allows students, staff, and parents the ability to send anonymous tips through a secure website, smartphone app, or by phone to keep their schools safe. All messages are encrypted and routed through secure servers to protect the sender. The user is given an alias and a unique ID before the message is sent to the Speak Up Coordinator for USD 261. This allows the user and the coordinator to have a two-way dialog without revealing the sender’s identity. The funding for the service is provided by Crime Stoppers of Wichita/Sedgwick County.
