Dear Students and Guardians/Parents:

Crimestoppers, Inc. operates the Safe Schools LA Anonymous Reporting program across Louisiana, which allows students the ability to send anonymous tips through our App for schools to investigate or on Many tips involve bullying/ cyber bullying / sexting or on line/social media harassment. As part of our Safe Schools program, we are creating a video allowing students to send a message on zero tolerance for bullying and how we can help "Speak Up" to protect and advocate for ourselves and peers. This video will be part of our educational program and provided free of charge to our school partners. To see one of our videos produced, please visit

We are seeking high school students to appear in the video. Each student will answer simple questions about their experience with bullying.

For example:

  • How would you define bullying today in high school?
  • What can be the effect of bullying on a high school student?
  • What happens when someone does not speak up when they witness bullying?
  • What would you do if you knew someone who was bullied?
  • What is the worst bullying you have seen OR experienced? What would have helped in this case?
  • Serving Orleans, Jefferson, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany, Plaquemines and Wash

The students will appear both as a group and individually when speaking. They will endorse using the Safe Schools LA anonymous reporting app to Speak Up.

The taping will take place on Monday, April 1st at the WYES studios located next to Delgado Community College. A specific time will be set for each student to arrive. The entire taping should not take more than 2 hours and the taping will be during the daytime.

The students will be asked to bring two shirts/blouses of different suggested colors. This is to have the best visual appearance complementing our graphics.

The finished video will be shown across the state in our partnering schools, as well as appear on our Safe Schools LA website and other promotional opportunities appropriate to our school settings.

To thank you for your time, we will provide each student with a $25 amazon gift card. Once the video is completed, we will send a link for you to enjoy!
