TAKE A STAND AGAINST CRIME!

By guaranteeing a caller's anonymity, Campus Crime Stoppers allows the caller to give information in a positive, anonymous atmosphere without the prospect of retribution. By offering cash rewards for information leading to arrests, the program encourages otherwise reluctant callers to provide information.

Calls are received at the Hays County Crime Stoppers tips line (1-800-324-8477). This phone line does not provide caller ID, and conversations are not recorded. The Crime Stopper Law Enforcement Coordinator/SRO receiving the information completes the tip information form, makes initial inquiries, and then passes the information to the appropriate campus/officer.

Hays County Crime Stoppers is proud to have Campus Crime Stoppers programs at Hays High School, Johnson High School, Lehman High School, and San Marcos High School.

PROUD PARTNERS WITH OUR LOCAL SCHOOL DISTRICTS

Partnering with our local school districts, Hays County Crime Stoppers brings the opportunity to campuses and students to engage, educate, and empower students, faculty, and staff into becoming outstanding stewards for their respective campuses.  We could not do any of this without the support of Hays Consolidated Independent School District and San Marcos Consolidated Independent School District.

Fighting Fentanyl: The Crisis

In Part 1, Episode 1 of “Fighting Fentanyl: The Crisis,” we introduce Hays CISD audiences to the local fentanyl crisis in our community. It opens powerfully with the tragic story of Kevin McConville who would have been a senior at Lehman High School, Class of 2023. However, just two weeks before the start of his senior year, he died from a suspected fentanyl overdose - never knowing it was fentanyl he took. Additionally, this video showcases first responders and their work on the front lines.

Fighting Fentanyl: Help is Here

In part 2 of the Hays CISD Fighting Fentanyl video series, audiences learn more about the crisis and learn how to reach out for help for themselves, a loved-one, or a friend. Additionally, the video discusses signs of fentanyl use. Hear from those on the front-lines of the fentanyl fight at schools.

The message: Fentanyl is here. We need to talk about fentanyl. And, fentanyl is deadly.

Fighting Fentanyl: Signs and Symptoms

As the fight against fentanyl continues, understanding what the effects of fentanyl use might look like can mean the difference between life and death. In this video, the third in our “Fighting Fentanyl” series, we chronicle some of the signs and symptoms associated with fentanyl use and what students, teachers and parents need to look out for.

We begin with Barton Middle School Nurse Christi Chabarria and Pediatrician Dr. Anna Lincoln, MD, FAAP, who detail some of the warning signs to look for in young people who might be using fentanyl. Chabarria also details some of the symptoms associated with fentanyl use and fentanyl overdose and how the drug affects the body.

Recognizing what can happen after a person suffers a fentanyl overdose is just as important as well. Jill Rosales, Battalion Chief and Paramedic with the San Marcos Hays County EMS, gives powerfully candid testimony on what can happen to a young person’s body following a fentanyl overdose.

Dr. Lincoln shares how vitally important it is for people, especially teenagers, to talk about mental health and reaching out for help.
