SafeOregon aims to prevent school tragedies

A free tip line was created for students, parents, and community members to report any safety threats made to public or private schools.

OREGON -- Oregon State Police want to remind parents about the SafeOregon school tip line.

It is a way for students, parents, and community members to report problems like bullying, harassment, safety threats, and drugs in schools K-12.

"Sometimes students might see or hear something that might be confusing or they are unsure what to do with the information but they do know something isn't right. That's where the tip line can help. Students have the opportunity to provide information to a trusted adult that can look into the situation and take it from there," said Superintendent Travis Hampton.

The tip line gives a voice to those students who don't feel comfortable going to an adult for whatever reason or they might be anxious or afraid.

The service is free and is already in 749 public and private schools statewide.

The goal is to prevent school safety threats from happening by offering communities a way to report potential threats.

People can make a report in various ways including email, text, call, use the app or report it on the website. Trained staff are available 24-hours-a-day, 365-days-a-year to review, analyze and forward every tip to designated personnel who can further assist. They also make sure follow-up is noted and recorded.

Since the tip line was created in January 2017, over 525 tips have been received.
