State Representative Marlene Anielski (R-Walton Hills) yesterday visited Liberty Union High School in Baltimore, Ohio alongside the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Public Safety.

Rep. Anielski, State Superintendent Richard Ross, and Ohio Director of Public Safety John Born visited with key staff at the school to announce the roll out of the tip line and familiarize students with the program. Any school, public or private, can sign up for the free tip line using the Department of Education’s website.

Research shows that for 81 percent of violent incidents in U.S. schools, someone other than the attacker knew something but didn’t report it for fear of being identified. Trained professionals at Ohio Homeland Security’s Threat Assessment and Prevention (TAP) unit answer all calls and texts to 844-SaferOH. When action is needed, TAP staff immediately forwards information to the school staff member you designate. Local law enforcement agencies or others may be notified, if the situation warrants. Tip line staff will follow up quickly with the affected school and law enforcement agencies to make sure the incident was investigated and the outcome was tracked. More than 800 schools across the state have signed up since the program was released last month.

“I am pleased that the program is available free of cost to all Ohio schools,” said Rep. Anielski. “In order for students to excel academically they must feel safe in their environment and I am confident that this anonymous program is a crucial step in preventing unspeakable tragedies. We must do everything we can to protect our most precious gifts, our children.”

For more information about the tip line, please call SaferOH at (614) 644-2641.
