Wyoming Students Are Using Safe2Tell

People are taking advantage of a new program that allows students to anonymously report threats or safety concerns.

Since launching in late October, Safe2Tell Wyoming has received 113 tips, 76 of which have come from the Natrona County School District where the program was initially launched.
Suicide threats were the most common report in November. Drugs and bullying rounded out the top three, with 12 and 10 reports, respectively.

The program funnels anonymous tips collected through a mobile app, a website and a phone line to law enforcement and school officials. The program is monitored 24 hours a day.

Safe2Tell was first implemented in Colorado after the mass shooting at Columbine High School in 1999.

Earlier this year, the Legislature passed, and Gov. Matt Mead signed, the bill authorizing Safe2Tell Wyoming.

Guy Cameron, director of the Wyoming Office of Homeland Security, said in October the program has three core components: education and awareness to improve school safety, prevention and early intervention while protecting the reporter’s confidentiality, and accountability and follow-up to ensure authorities properly handled a situation.
