Safe2Say Something

Safe2Say Something logo
 
 
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.
 
Safe2Say Mobile app logo 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:
  1. An anonymous tip is submitted via the mobile app, website or phone call  to the Safe2Say Something Crisis Center.
  2. 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.
  3. Crisis Center analysts deliver the tip to the impacted school and, as needed, to local law enforcement via 911 County Dispatch.
  4. The school and, as needed, local law enforcement, assess and intervene with the at-risk individual.
  5. The school then closes out the tip and reports action taken as a record for their school.

The Bethel Park School District also encourages students and parents to immediately report any issues of concern to school district personnel when someone sees or hears something that would pose a threat to others or school.  This direct reporting is a key piece to the District's plan to promote and maintain a safe school environment.  Speaking to school personnel will trigger an immediate investigation of the concern.

You are also always encouraged to contact the Bethel Park Police Department directly at 412-833-2000.  They will also take every tip seriously and investigate.

Reporting a threat to school personnel, contacting the Bethel Park Police Department and using Safe2Say Something are three viable options for keeping everyone safe.
