DENVER (CBS4) — Colorado’s attorney general says the Safe2Tell program is set to have yet another record-breaking school year for number of tips reported.
More than 18,000 reports were made just last month.
That’s a 46 percent increase compared to September 2017.
“Safe2Tell Colorado provides the only anonymous way for students, parents and community members to report unsafe and risky behaviors before they grow out of control,” the website states.
