Summit High school may have found a way to connect with kids and keep them safe at the same time. If you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.

 

A new program called "Text A Tip" was implemented at the beginning of the school year by School Resource Officer Scott Vincent.

 

Vincent says its a confidential way in which students can communicate with him - anonymously - to report dangerous behavior or situations.  "We've had some issues where I’m sure that people would have actually walked into my office to discuss this. But because it's a communication that's so part of their lifestyle; texting is a predominant way that these teenagers will communicate nowadays.  It’s just a way for them to communicate with us. They don't have to come into the office. This way they can communicate with me completely confidentially."

 

Vincent says almost every student who has texted him with an issue has wanted to meet with him to discuss it in person, because he's earned their trust.

 

Vincent says he's received at least 90 texts since the beginning of school; compared to a handful last year before the program.
