Michigan AG Unveils Confidential School Safety Line
Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette has unveiled a new statewide hotline and online student safety system called OK2SAY. Schuette unveiled the initiative in Detroit on Wednesday after previously promoting it at other districts - including Flint - around the state. According to a news release from the Attorney General's office, the new system will enable "students to confidentially report potential harm or criminal activities aimed at students, teachers, staff or other school employees." The system operates all the time and much like Crime Stoppers, will keep reporting identities confidential unless they voluntarily identify themselves. The new program is part of the Student Safety Act of 2013. For more information, visit: www.mi.gov/ok2say or 1-8-555-OK2SAY.
