An anonymous reporting system designed to give Pennsylvania students, teachers, parents and community members the ability to anonymously report potential threats and other problems has collected nearly 23,500 tips in its first six months of operation. The “Safe2Say” program, created by a 2018 law, launched in mid-January to give students a way to share information without fear of repercussions or blame from their peers. Among the most common issues reported are bullying and cyber-bullying; suicide and depression; and drug-related issues. To report a possible dangerous or violent situation, individuals can call the state tip line at 844-723-2729.
