For a growing number of schools nationwide, students are sharing
information and confidential tips via the Safe School Helpline®.
Sound too good to be true? It's today's reality.
Students have eagle eyes and excellent hearing. Students do know
what's about to come down. They've heard the threats, seen the
evidence, and are scared. They want to keep their school safe.
Students are ready and willing to share information with school
authorities, if they can do so anonymously, and without fear of
What if the school could prevent a suicide?
How about stopping a drug ring cold?
What if you learned the whereabouts of a concealed
weapon before it could do damage?
These and many other tragic situations have already been
prevented. Wouldn't you, as administrators, do the same for your
students? Wouldn't you, as parents, want this for your children?
Stop Trouble Before It
"Since 1997 there have been
numerous shootings in U.S.
schools. The vast majority of
perpetrators verbalized their
threat before the incident. If we
can capture that information
before an event occurs and
work with law enforcement, we
hope that we could prevent
future incidents," states William
F. Downey, retired special agent
for the FBI.
