The Safer Ohio Tip Line
The Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Public Safety have launched the Safer Ohio tip line that will accept both calls and texts 24 hours a day.
About the Tip Line:
This tip line allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement about threats to student safety—whether that involves a threatened mass incident or harm to a single student.
Every tip can remain anonymous. School safety analysts may ask for additional information, but the caller can remain secret or leave his or her contact information for later follow-up.
Calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764) are answered by analysts in the Ohio Homeland Security’s Threat Assessment and Prevention (TAP) Unit. When action is needed, the TAP Unit immediately forwards information to Portsmouth City Schools, local law enforcement agencies, and others, if necessary.
