Department of Juvenile Justice Introduces TIP Line

To promote the safety of both juvenile offenders and detention center staff, the Department of Juvenile Justice last week introduced its new online TIP Line. By encouraging both state employees and the general public to share information about crime in the detention centers, the TIP Line hopes to root out illegal gang activity, prevent contraband smuggling and investigate claims of staff policy violation.

"We’re determined to bring about best practices and professional change in the department," said DJJ Commissioner L. Gale Buckner in a recent press statement. "The DJJ On-line TIP line is another tool we can use to help make that happen."
