Mesa County, CO – District 51 received 406 tips through Safe2Tell in the first year since the relaunch of a more user-friendly Safe2Tell reporting system.

Safe2Tell is a statewide reporting system that funnels anonymous tips about a variety of subjects impacting students – including suicide, bullying, mental health, threats to school safety, and more – to local law enforcement, district security personnel, and school administration. District 51 promotes Safe2Tell with flyers and posters in each middle and high school and by handing out Safe2Tell cards and bookmarks at all grade levels, in addition to social media posts and advertising for the general public.

The free, anonymous reporting system is designed for students, who can send tips any time, any day, by downloading the Safe2Tell texting app, calling 1-877-542-7233, or visiting safe2tell.org.
