Colorado: Share your Safe2Tell story with us
I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS is beginning a reporting project on the Safe2Tell hotline, and needs your help. Have you, your child or student used the hotline? I-News reporters want to hear about your experience with it.
Safe2Tell launched in 2004 influenced by the Columbine tragedy. The program provides an anonymous hotline service for kids who have information about potential harm to themselves or others. Calls are forwarded directly to the police so violence in schools and elsewhere can potentially be avoided. According to the Denver Post, the Safe2Tell hotline has received 282 reports of planned school attacks and prevented over 1,000 suicides to date.
Funding for the ten-year old program is now running out and I-News wants to know: Would you support additional funding for Safe2Tell? What's your experience using the hotline?
We want to emphasize that your responses will only be read by journalists from I-News at Rocky Mountain PBS and the Public Insight Network. What you share will not be published unless you give explicit permission to do otherwise.
