My name is Officer Phillips from the Maui Police Department and I am the school resource officer at Iao School. With the support of Principal Dillon we are providing a program called Text-A-Tip. This program allows students to use their cell phone to report issues such as bullying, fights, crimes, school violations, threats of suicide, weapons, and other threats related to campus safety. These texts are confidential and allow students to report without being identified by their peers.
- Tips are confidential not anonymous
- Texts can be traced back to the sender
- Tipsters should provide factual information
- Tipsters may receive follow up texts with more details
- Students that do not use this service as intended may be subject to discipline.
- For actual emergencies in progress please call 911
