GCC students could field calls to Guam Crime Stoppers service
Public safety assistance is still not on the other line of 477-HELP - that’s the Guam Crime Stoppers anonymous tip service. The number has been out of service for more than one year now, as the non-profit’s partnership with the G4S security company ending, leaving phones unmanned.
But the hotline may be back up and running, with a home for its call center at the Guam Community College, as a memorandum of understanding is looking to be smoothed out in the next 30 days.
That's according to Crime Stoppers chairman Jim McDonald, who says he looks forward to the possibility of having GCC students trained to operate the hotline.
“Criminal justice, the law enforcement administration, even the public administration," said McDonald. "The people that are majoring in public administration, because you know, Crime stoppers isn’t just for the criminal justice area—it’s a responsibility for all the citizens to report any crime.”
For now, you can still send crime tips anonymously at p3tips.com or by calling the Guam Police.
