Vermont School Safety

The purpose of this tip line is to enhance school safety and security by providing students, faculty, staff and members of the community, with a tool to report concerning behaviors that may have a negative impact on our schools.  These tips will assist law enforcement, human service providers and school administrators in identifying school threats and coordinating assistance to students and families for services not needing immediate response.

Submitted tips will be received 24 hours a day/ 7 days a week and assessed to determine if an immediate action from law enforcement or other first responders is needed.  Tips that are determined to be non-criminal and do not contain an element of imminent threat to life, will be directed to VT 211 (United Way) to identify and provide the additional services. 

Additional ways to submit a tip:

Dial (844) 723-3488 and speak with a call taker

Send a text to 274637, type in keyword SAFE4VT and then your tip
