Aloha, my name is Officer Laga from the Maui Police Department, and I am your Child's School Resource Officer (SRO). With the support of our principal, Mr. Keoni Wilhelm, I am pleased to inform you that we will be launching a new program with our school system. This program is called "Text-A-Tip".
This program will allow students to use their cell phone during non-instructional periods to text and report issues such as bullying, depression, fights, violations, crimes and any threats relating to campus safety. The text will be confidential, students can report a problem without the fear of being labeled a "snitch", "rat", "narc", or "tattletale" by their peers. Posters will be placed in your students classroom and all common areas throughout campus. Our Main goal is to make our campus a safer place for your student to learn.
School Resource Officer (MPD)
