161 districts submitted a TLC application. 74 schools were awarded a grant.
The grant will bring an additional $200,000 dollars to our school district each year. Theses additional resources will help us provide additional supports for our students, teachers, and help improve our overall academic program.

We’ve all been there. While having fun or just hanging out, we see something going on that we believe is dangerous, will hurt somebody else, or is simply wrong. Some of us may choose to say something while others may not feel comfortable or safe in doing so. Text-a-Tip from Linn County Crime Stoppers offers an alternative way to safely and anonymously intervene. Bystanders that have knowledge of a crime can text the necessary information (ie: who, what, where, and when) to law enforcement. The text is routed through a server in Canada allowing the tipster and the investigator to have a two-way dialog while keeping the tipster's identity anonymous. When the tipster is done with their report, they can simply enter STOP at the end of the text stopping the communication and erasing relevant texts. The tipster’s identifying information does not need to be shared unless they are seeking a reward. What a great way to play a role in stopping crime and increasing safety anonymously.
