DENVER (KDVR) — As kids returned to school following remote learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Safe2Tell tips climbed.
In May, the program received 1,303 tips, a 49% increase in monthly tip volume compared to May 2020. Suicide threats, welfare checks and bullying are the top three categories reported.
To date, Safe2Tell has received 10,460 tips for the 2020-2021 school year, a 47% decrease over the 2019-2020 school year.
Summer break is here and Safe2Tell is still available 24/7, 365 days a year, even when kids aren’t in school.
