Collinsville High School Student Resource Officer Mark Terveer introduced the P3 Campus app to CHS students in a series of assemblies during the school day on August 24, 2018.
P3 Campus is an anonymous tip reporting platform where students can report a wide range of concerns, from mental health issues to threats of violence.
Officer Terveer told students, “The goal is to make the school environment the safest environment possible.”
“You hear and see things before we [adults] do,” he said, “If you hear or see something that is wrong or creates concerns, this is a chance for you to help your fellow students and be part of the solution.”
The P3 Campus is accessed via an app downloaded on a mobile device or through the P3Campus.com website. The CHS P3 Campus will be monitored 24/7 by the Student Resource Officer (SRO). The tips that come in are 100% ANONYMOUS.
“The only way I know who you are is if you tell me or if I go to a judge to be granted a subpoena to obtain the records,” said Terveer. When a student submits a tip, a number is assigned so the student’s identity is not known. He assured the students that P3 is not a “snitch app” — it’s a way to help friends who need help and to keep the school community safe.
Once a report is received, Terveer explained it is forwarded to the appropriate resource. Issues requiring intervention from law enforcement will be investigated, while tips requiring social/emotional support will be forwarded to school counselors and social workers who can offer assistance or referrals. Some tips will be forwarded to school administration for follow-up.
Students who have an urgent situation to report should contact local law enforcement or call 911.
The Collinsville High School P3 Campus was made possible by a donation from RE/MAX Alliance.
