Jefferson County safety forum is meeting of minds to improve safety

JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. -- It’s not so much a pep rally as a study session.

The gymnasium at Lakewood High School was packed with educators, parents and law enforcement personnel Tuesday night.

It was part of the Jeffco School Safety Forum, a meeting of the minds to improve school safety.

After a panel discussion, parents broke up into small groups. One of the more popular tables was Safe2Tell Colorado.

Safe2Tell is an anonymous reporting group.

The number of people reporting to the tip line for 2018  has already surpassed the total in 2017.
