The focus of Safe2Tell is to ensure that every Colorado student, parent, teacher and community member has access to a safe and anonymous way to report any concerns about their safety or safety of others. Safe2Tell accomplishes this by early intervention and prevention through awareness, education and accountable follow-up.
Kids Know Before
We know that targeted school shootings rarely happen without some sort of warning sign. The U.S. Secret Service conducted the Safe School Initiative, a study of school shootings and other school-based attacks finding that usually "at least one other person has some type of knowledge of the attacker's plan." Most of those individuals who had prior knowledge were peers of the perpetrators.
Culture and Safety
Impacting Culture and Safety
The goal of Safe2Tell is to intervene at the earliest possible point in the life of a young person who is struggling, helping them when they need it before the situation turns into a tragedy. Safe2Tell serves as the statewide bystander reporting tool for concerns in Colorado.
