Safe2Tell WY is for students who need to report threats to themselves or others – in a way that keeps them SAFE.
Safe2Tell WY is CONFIDENTIAL
The Toll-Free number is: 1-844-996-7233 (844-WYO-SAFE).

Students often won’t talk to their parents, teachers, or others in authority. That’s a part of growing up. Often a mistake can happen when teenagers don’t talk to anyone about a friend considering suicide or about someone they suspect may be planning an attack on a school. Students use social media to talk to each other and share their feelings and whats happening in their lives.

We students know, long before the adults do, what’s occurring in our school and in the community – including fighting and bullying, substance abuse, dangerous and concerning behaviors, threats, depressions, suicide, and self-injury—either witnessed in-person or online. Students may use Safe2Tell Wyoming to report: bullying, stealing, threats, fights, drugs, alcohol, weapons, sexual misconduct, harassment, stalking, dating violence, cutting, suicidal behaviors or any other violent or dangerous situations that threaten their safety or the safety of others.

Teacher Mr. Guild said, “I believe Safe2Tell can provide teenagers or anyone a place to really reach out to someone if they are in need. Students often times won’t talk to anyone, so this could be a new anonymous resort.”

There is a big difference between tattling and telling. Tattling  is the intentional act of trying to get someone in trouble or make yourself look good. Telling is reporting an issue to help someone who is struggling or being hurt. When you submit a tip you remain anonymous.

Sophomore Morrea Morgan said, “I think the whole idea of this is great, and hopefully if there’s anyone ever in danger they can maybe turn to this and save someone’s life potentially.”

When someone submits a tip, the information is handled by the Wyoming Highway Patrol’s dispatch center on a 24 hour and 7 days a week basis. The information is passed to local  responders who can intervene in a crisis. Safe2Tell helps to enable and encourage people, not just students, to notify professionals who can help someone.

Senior Allison Kallgren said, “Hopefully Safe2Tell will hep end these situations, and help those students prevent their personal tragedies or other tragedies.”

Reports also may be made using the Safe2Tell Wyoming mobile app available on the Apple Store and Google Play. Safe2Tell WY is for serious reports only. It is NOT for pranks or hang-up calls. False reports and blatant misuse of the Safe2Tell WY resource will be investigated.
