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 and bullying.
In 2017, RE/MAX Alliance owners Rick and Tammy Owens offered to contribute the necessary funds to support implementation of P3 at CHS. They did not hesitate to continue their donation with a check for $2,400 for the 2019-20 school year.
“As soon as we learned abut this, we knew that our agents would step up and help contribute along with a significant company contribution,” says Rick Owens.
The P3 Campus is accessed via an app downloaded on a mobile device or through the P3Campus.com website. The CHS P3 Campus is monitored 24/7 by the school’s Student Resource Officer (SRO). The tips that come in are 100% anonymous.
The app allows users to communicate the the police department directly by sending photos, screenshots, videos, documents or audio recordings.
CHS SRO Mark Terveer said once a report is received, 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 directly or call 911.
“This was a great opportunity to give back to the communities we serve, to create a safer environment for our students and to create a safer and more attractive community for the residents of the area both in terms of retaining current homeowners and attracting new ones to the area,” said Owens.
