What is Safe2Say Something?

Safe2SaySomething is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General that teaches youth and adults how to recognize warning signs and signals from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others, particularly on social media, and to "say something" before it is too late. 

In 2018, the Pennsylvania General Assembly approved Act 44, which requires every school district in Pennsylvania to implement Safe2Say Something and train all school district officials as well as students in grades 6-12. 

It is simple and discreet to report safety concerns to help prevent violence and tragedies using the anonymous reporting system. 

Safe2Say Something Process

The program operates as follows:

  • Submit an anonymous tip report 24 hours a day, seven days a week using the Safe2Say Something website, app, or phone. 
  • All entries are reviewed, evaluated, and processed by the crisis center. 
  • The crisis center forwards all reports to school administrators and/or law enforcement for intervention. 
  • If necessary, the crisis center may contact the tipster anonymously via the app. 
  • The Penn Hills School District also urges students and parents to report any issues of concern to school district employees as soon as they see or hear something that could endanger others or the school. 
  • This direct reporting is an important component of the District's strategy to establish and maintain a safe school environment. 
  • Speaking with school personnel will result in an immediate investigation of the issue. 

Safe2SaySomething, reporting the threat to school authorities, and contacting the police are all good ways to ensure the safety of everyone.
