Officials cite the likely reasons are delayed school openings and remote learning. In all, the program received 1,189 tips; 256 were suicide threats; 100 were welfare checks; 69 were school complaints.

They add many other complaints were related to COVID-19. Program officials say those should be reported to the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment.

Additionally, false tips are down to 1.7% from 2.5%.

Reports can be made 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 1-877-542-7233, online at Safe2Tell.org or through the Safe2Tell mobile app.
