Safe2Talk is a free downloadable app that can be used by students, parents, teachers and residents to report safety concerns in our schools. The app allows users to choose the school where the issue is occurring and the type of incident. The user is provided options through drop-down menus for incidents such as alcohol and drug use, dating violence, weapons, sexual misconduct, graffiti, hate crimes, physical abuse, suicidal behaviors or any other actions that threaten a student’s safety or the safety of others.
Providing information through the app will assist Loudoun County Public School security personnel, School Resource Officers, and investigators in determining the validity of the information, help minimize the spread of false information and allow for an appropriate follow up. “The safety and security of all students and staff is Loudoun County Public Schools’ highest priority,” said Dr. Eric Williams, superintendent. “We encourage students to ‘say something if they see something,’ and this app is intended to make that easier.”
The app is available through the Apple App Store and Google Play.
