Reporting and Safety Tips: The Janesville Police Department encourages the public to contact the police should they observe any suspicious behavior by anyone in the community. Additional safety tips for students are as follows: • Walk with a friend when possible. • Stick to the route you picked with your parents. Don’t let friends talk you into shortcuts that are potentially dangerous. • Never take rides, speak to, or accept gifts from strangers. • Kids should be focused and very aware of their surroundings for their own safety. Listening to music, talking on the phone, playing games, and watching videos while walking and crossing streets is dangerous. • Report any suspicious activity to a trusted adult, your teacher, the police resource officer, or a school administrator as soon as possible. Trust your instincts. If it doesn’t feel right, something is probably wrong. • In case of emergency dial 911. • Non-emergency calls can be directed to (608) 757-2244. • Crime Stoppers can be contacted at (608) 756-3636. • Citizens can also download the FREE “P3 tips” app at the Apple store or Google Play store to submit crime tips ANONYMOUSLY.
