National Safety Month
Starting in 1996, the National Safety Council (NSC) recognized June as National Safety Month.1 In 2021, the NSC is celebrating 25 years of hard work that has gone towards education, awareness, and other efforts that have helped prevent countless injuries and lives at home, on the roads, and at work.1 National Safety Month is focused on all types of safety in all environments.
For this year’s National Safety Month, Crime Stoppers of Tarrant County is choosing to focus on workplace violence. OSHA has defined workplace violence as “any act or threat of physical violence, harassment, intimidation, or other threatening disruptive behavior that occurs at the work site.” 2 It ranges from threats and verbal abuse to physical assaults and even homicide; and can affect or involve employees, clients, customers and visitors.2 Below are just the recent examples of workplace violence that have happened just this calendar year:
  • Atlanta spa shooting on March 16, 2021
  • Bryan, TX shooting on April 8, 2021
  • Indianapolis FedEx shooting on April 15, 2021
  • San Jose shooting on May 28, 2021
While all workplace violence incidents do not include a mass shooting, it’s important to emphasize the amount and severity of such events just this year. Being able to know the common warning signs and effective prevention strategies is vital to maintaining a safe workplace. To learn more about warning signs and prevention strategies, visit the NSC’s page on workplace violence by clicking here.
Crime Stoppers of Tarrant County is equipped to take anonymous tips on workplace violence including assaults, unlawful weapon possession, theft, robbery, burglary, and various other crimes. If you or someone you know has information about workplace violence then submit an anonymous tip by calling 817-469-8477, going to, or by using the “P3 Tips” mobile app. Crime Stoppers is NOT an emergency line, if you or your workplace is experiencing an emergent situation please call 911.
Pride Month!
Crime Stoppers of Tarrant County is proud to celebrate Pride Month! Pride Month is celebrated each year during the month of June. Celebrating in June honors the Stonewall Inn riots that took place in June of 1969.3 The Stonewall Inn uprising signifies a turning point in the fight towards equal justice, rights, and opportunity for LGBTQ+ Americans that continues to this day.3 Fortunately, LGBTQ+ Americans have continued to make achievements in their fight towards justice and equal rights including the right to marry in 2015. However, there is still much more to focus on, particularly that of workplace discrimination and hate violence towards LGBTQ+ people, especially for transgender individuals.
It’s important to remember that Pride is a month that is—while emphasizing LGBTQ+ rights—focused on building community, acceptance, respect, safety, and love for everyone. We hope you are able to reach out to those LGBTQ+ individuals in your life and show them your support while also building a safer community.
At Crime Stoppers of Tarrant County, we strongly believe that, like other communities in our county, the LGBTQ+ community deserves to live a life free of hate, violence, crime, and the fear of violence or crime. Please join us in celebrating and standing in solidarity with the LGBTQ+ community. Happy Pride!
Crime Stoppers of Tarrant County is an anonymous outlet for reporting information on incidents of hate crime or violence on LGBTQ+ individuals. If you or someone you know is a victim of a hate crime, please call 911. For those who may have information on someone who has committed hate crimes please leave an anonymous tip by calling 817-469-8477, going to, or using the “P3 Tips” mobile app.
