Michigan attorney general promotes school safety hotline

Posted: Updated:
SAGINAW, MI (AP) -

Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette is promoting a hotline and online student safety system called OK2SAY.

Schuette unveiled the program last year and says it has had success promoting student safety. An event took place Monday at Saginaw Arts and Sciences Academy and Schuette says that during the 2014-15 school year more than 1,400 tips were submitted by Michigan students.

Most tips were related to bullying and suicide. Other tips included reporting drug use, weapon possession or assault.

The system operates all the time and keeps reporting people's identities confidential unless they voluntary identify themselves. It allows students to report potential harm or criminal activities aimed at students, teachers, staff or other school employees.

It's reachable by phone, online and by mobile app.
