Have you ever heard someone say, "I just didn't know if I should report this or not?"
People often hesitate to report concerns or suspicions about safety issues when they aren't positive it poses a serious problem, may not know all the facts, or are worried about getting involved for fear of retaliation.
Based on the concept of "see something, say something," the Safe Schools, Safe Community Helpline is designed to allow people to anonymously report concerns when individuals may hurt themselves or others - - before something happens. Individuals can call or text, 24-hours a day, concerns about individuals who may do harm to themselves or others.
When should I call the helpline? We encourage you to call or text the helpline when you know of a situation where someone MAY do harm. These situations include POSSIBLE acts of violence, suicide, theft, drug or alcohol use, sexual harassment, weapons, bullying or other issues.
This number does not replace 911. Please call 911 if you witness or know that an emergency IS occurring, someone IS hurt, someone IS in the act of harming someone else, or IS in the act of damaging or stealing property, or IS buying or selling drugs.

The anonymous helpline is an extension of the "See Something, Say Something safety plan that has proven to be successful in preventing and responding to serious threats and violence.
