Safe 2 Say
What is Safe2Say Something?
Safe 2 Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The program teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late. With Safe2Say Something, it’s easy and confidential to report safety concerns to help prevent violence and tragedies.
Students in 5th - 12th grade are able to use the Safe 2 Say app to report: bullying, suicide concerns, depression, stealing, threats, abuse, fights, weapons or other types of dangerous situations that threaten their safety or the safety of others. Their reports will be addressed by a trained team of school officials and law enforcement, when necessary.
When you or your student have a concern you would like to report, you can:
- Visit www.safe2saypa.org on your computer, tablet, or laptop.
- Call 1-844-SAF2SAY (1-844-723-2729)
- Download the Safe 2 Say mobile app.
The use of anonymous reporting apps in state programs like Safe 2 Say have proven to be successful in providing the tools and information needed for school officials and to proactively address concerning behaviors, potential incidents of violence, and other harmful situations on campus before they develop.
Here’s how it works:
- Submit an anonymous tip report through the Safe2SaySomething system
- Crisis center reviews, assesses, and processes all submissions
- Crisis center sends all submissions to school administration and/or law enforcement for intervention
- If needed, crisis center may contact tipster anonymously through the app.
