Like many of you, the recent tragedy in Parkland, Florida has left us wondering what more we can do to help protect our kids in school.
While there’s no easy solution, we believe tip411 can help students to more effectively share information anonymously with administrators and/or law enforcement.
tip411 School Edition enables students to send anonymous tips to Administrators, School Resource Officers (SROs), and other authorized personnel who can respond to the tips in real time from any internet connected device, creating a two way anonymous chat.
It provides a “safe space” for students to communicate with authority figures through two-way anonymous communications that facilitate dialogue, leading to more accurate information.
“Our SRO’s have great relationships with many students, but tip411 allows our SRO’s to build relationships with students they have not yet been able to reach. tip411 also promotes kids being responsible for the safety of their schools and having them take that kind of ownership is priceless.” – McKinney Independent School District’s Director of Safety, Greg Hill
Many communities across the US have begun to use tip411 to improve school safety, and examples of how they’ve use it can be found here:
