On December 15, 2014, an anonymous tip line became available, free of charge, to all Ohio school districts. This new tool, called SaferOH, is designed to allow students, parents, teachers and community members to report suspected threats to safety in schools, whether directed toward a single student or a group of students and hopefully deter school violence. Calls and texts can be sent 24 hours/ day – 7 days/week and will be answered by trained analysts from Ohio Homeland Security’s Threat Assessment and Prevention (TAP) Unit. When action is needed, the TAP Unit will immediately forward information to school officials and/or local law enforcement. Schools can sign-up by logging on to saferschools.ohio.gov.
