In 2018, the General Assembly passed Act 44 mandating the establishment and use of the “Safe2Say Something” (S2SS) anonymous reporting system by every Pennsylvania school entity by January 14, 2019.
S2SS is a life-saving and changing school safety program that teaches students, educators, and administrators how: (1) to recognize the signs and signals of individuals who may be at risk of hurting themselves or others and (2) to anonymously report this information through the S2SS app, website, or 24/7 Crisis Center Hotline. The following provides a brief overview of how the program works. There are trainings for students and staff scheduled in the near future. Please take the time to read through the information from the Office of The Attorney General located in several links on the right. These links provide more in depth details regarding the basis for and logistics of the Safe 2 Say Something initiative.
S2SS works through 5 easy steps:
1. A tip is submitted via mobile app, website, or by calling the PA based 24/7 Crisis Center
2. The tip is then triaged by the Crisis Center to gather enough information to act on it
3. The tip is delivered to the impacted school and, as needed, 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 actions taken as a record for their school
The phone number is 1-844-SAF2SAY (1-844-723-2729)
