Statement from Crime Stoppers of Houston Regarding the School Shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas


Crime Stoppers of Houston is heartbroken to learn of the tragic school shooting at Robb Elementary in Uvalde, Texas. The loss of students who did nothing more than show up for school during a season where end-of-year festivities are gearing up, is too much to fathom. Innocent elementary school students should never have to hear the sounds of gun violence, screaming, cries and terror – especially while at school.

Crime Stoppers of Houston has been making school safety a priority since 1997. Now training over 750 schools, and millions of students, our free programming strives to ensure of the safety of all kids in all schools at all times. To date, the CS Safe School Institute has removed over 280 weapons from Houston area schools before they could ever be used against a student. Today is another reminder of just how critically important that work is.

As a reminder, our team is available to come to any school district statewide to train students and staff on Tip Line and other school safety measures. Request a presentation here: https://crime-stoppers.org/presentation_request
