Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General that is designed to teach youth and adults how to recognize the 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.
The Pennsylvania General Assembly passed Act 44 in 2018, which mandates the establishment of Safe2Say Something by every school district in Pennsylvania, and the training of all school district personnel as well as students in grades 6-12.
There are three ways to submit an anonymous tip:
- Call the Tipline: 1-844-SAF2SAY (1-844-723-2729)
- Use the website: www.safe2saypa.org
- Use the mobile app, which is available for download in iOS and Android stores
Here's how Safe2Say Something works:
- An anonymous tip is submitted via the mobile app, website or phone call to the Safe2Say Something Crisis Center.
- Crisis Center analysts vet and triage the tip, then engage the tipster in anonymous two-way chat in order to provide detailed and immediately-actionable information to schools and dispatch.
- Crisis Center analysts deliver the tip to the impacted school and, as needed, to local law enforcement via 911 County Dispatch.
- The school and, as needed, local law enforcement, assess and intervene with the at-risk individual.
- The school then closes out the tip and reports action taken as a record for their school.
