The mission is to provide valuable crime prevention education and safety awareness services to residents and public safety providers in the greater tulsa area. Core programs include alert neighbors, crime stoppers, generation txt and safe escape.
Alert neighbors - the alert neighbors program trains citizen patrols to help keep neighborhoods safe. Since its inception in 1980, well over a million residents in the tulsa area have received this training. The alert neighbors program enlists citizen participation in crime prevention through neighborhood meetings where safety in the home and neighborhood are emphasized. Decreased incidents of burglary and related crimes are reported in neighborhoods that participate in this program. In addition, the sense of community formed by the program frequently serves as a catalyst for neighborhoods to address other issues.
crime stoppers - crime stoppers is an anonymous crime reporting hotline offering cash rewards for reporting criminal activity in tulsa and surrounding counties. Cpn fields the anonymous tips from citizens, and then passes them on to a special liaison in the tulsa police department. While keeping a manned 24x7 phone bank has been the core of the program, it has kept pace with changes in technology; and also supports anonymous tips through a website and via phone text. By promoting a safe way for witnesses to report crimes, crime stoppers has created a safe avenue for concerned citizens to help local law enforcement. Since the program started in 1979, crime stoppers alone has awarded $450,000 for information that resulted in solving more than 5,000 felony cases while recovering over $12 million in stolen property and narcotics. The overall arrest rate from tips provided is 85%.
generation txt - generation txt is a multi-faceted project designed by a diverse group of teens to help young teens and families practice safe driving, specifically by addressing the hazards of texting and emailing while driving. Teen driver statistics indicate that 21% of fatal car crashes in 16-19 year old drivers were the result of cell phone usage. The program focuses on educating 8th and 9th grade students. These teens are excited about driving; by educating them before they get behind the wheel of a car, they may be less likely to text while driving.
