City of Monroe Partners with P3 Campus and Monroe City Schools to Launch an App-based initiative that allows anonymous reporting of safety and mental health concerns
The media and interested parties are invited to a press conference to be held at 10:30 am Tuesday,
February 19, 2019, at the Monroe City School Board office, located at 2006 Tower Drive, to announce the
official launch of the P3 Campus Monroe School Safety Program.
We have recently partnered with the Texas-based company, Anderson Software, to provide a
seamless and efficient technology-based way for students, parents, school staff, and community
members to offer information to help prevent altercations, tragedies, and bring mental health
needs to light.
Mayor Jamie Mayo says, “Crime Stoppers of North Delta introduced this program to Chief
Eugene Ellis and the Monroe Police Department. He and I felt this would be a strong addition
to our S.A.V.E. Initiative. We are thankful to have Dr. Vidrine and the Monroe City School
System on board. For a small subscriber-fee, our city is embracing 21st century technology that
engages students, parents, school officials, law enforcement, and the community to help make
our schools and city safer.”
Monroe City Superintendent Dr. Brent Vidrine adds, “As a school district we strive to maintain
a safe environment so that our students receive the best education possible. The P3 Program
will enhance security measures that Monroe City School District currently have in place. We
are excited to partner with the City of Monroe to further safeguard our students and staff.
Implementation of this program, on all 19 of our school campuses, will provide an extra layer of
protection in hopes of preventing harmful incidents.”
Mayor Mayo adds, “Private and parochial schools in Monroe are welcome to become a part of this effort. Sponsors are also welcomed to help spread awareness and use of the program.”
Anderson Software leads the industry with its secure and anonymous tip acquisition and management solution, called P3 Intel. This technology is the foundation of P3 Campus, a comprehensive reporting solution designed specifically for the needs, behaviors, and attitudes of students. This partnership allows Monroe city government and the Monroe Police Department to foster a relationship between schools, mental health professionals, parents, and students themselves.
Monroe Police Chief Eugene Ellis adds, “The Monroe Police Department feels adding the P3 Campus MONROE SCHOOL SAFETY PROGRAM to our S.A.V.E. initiative is a proactive effort that give a voice to the concerned and will strengthen bonds between students and adults. The men and women of our police department are ready to do our part to help address issues and enhance student safety in our local schools.”
The P3 Campus MONROE SCHOOL SAFETY PROGRAM will be accepting reports through mobile or desktop web browsers at P3Campus.com or through the P3 Campus mobile app. The app is available for download FREE on the Google Play Store and the Apple App Store.
These methods of reporting seamlessly integrate into the lives of modern students. Reports are monitored 24/7 to ensure that time-sensitive matters are dealt with promptly. Reports made through the P3 Campus mobile app, unlike SMS text reports, have no length limitations or the need to remember a short code. Additionally, when reporters use the mobile app, they are notified when action has been taken on their report, which demonstrates the value of their time and concern.
In both the web browser and app form, reporters can attach photos, screenshots, videos, documents or audio recording to their reports. Plus, they can engage in two-way dialogue with a real person. Both features greatly facilitate swift interventions.
ABOUT THE S.A.V.E. Initiative
S.A.V.E. stands for Community Solutions and Voices Engaged to help our Youth. In response to a spike in youth related crime in the spring/summer of 2017, Mayor Mayo called a series of eight Think Tank! session community meetings at the Monroe Public Safety Center. Citizens from all walks of life attended and offered over 100 different constructive ideas to help create, support, and further enhance various programs, partnerships and initiatives to help SAVE OUR YOUTH from the streets.
