Safe 2 Tell Program

Safe 2 Tell Program

Summary:

The Safe2Tell Program, first created in 2004, is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization based on the Colorado Prevention Initiative for School Safety with initial funding from The Colorado Trust. The primary purpose of the Safe2Tell Program is to provide students and the community with the means to relay information anonymously concerning unsafe, potentially harmful, dangerous, violent, or criminal activities, or the threat of these activities, to appropriate law enforcement and public safety agencies and school officials. The suggested state legislation below amends the enabling statute for the program by clarifying that all students may report information anonymously via various media including text messaging, emails, web forms, etc. and that the information is protected from being publicly released. Further, only certain circumstances will allow the information to be subpoenaed in legal proceedings.
