TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A school program that began here in Pima County is now expanding to keep students safe all across Southern Arizona. 

Crime Stoppers, or 88-CRIME already reaches out to students in Tucson, letting them know how to report something they see suspicious at school.  Now the Crime Stoppers school program is reaching out to students in Cochise County too. 

88-CRIME relies on volunteers to get the word out about the tip line. Students can use 88-CRIME to report tagging, vandalism, bullying or even if they see someone with a weapon on campus. 

Crime Stoppers is a Pima County Attorney's Office program, but now they have help in Cochise County, and are going from school to school letting students know it is crucial to report suspicious activity.

Those with Crime Stoppers say they know it can be difficult for some students to report things, but 88-CRIME is making it easier than ever for students to report anonymously in one of two ways - calling the tip line at 88-CRIME or reporting it online at www.88CRIME.org.

Authorities are reminding students if there is an immediate threat call 911, instead.
