On Monday, January 14th, the Safe2Say Something (S2SS) anonymous reporting system will go live across Pennsylvania. This program, which is mandated under PA state law/Act 44,  teaches students, teachers, and administrators how to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, of individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to Say Something to a trusted adult or use its anonymous reporting system. Specifically, the program educates participants to:
• Recognize the signs and signals of at-risk behaviors – especially within social media
• Take every sign and signal seriously; act quickly to get help by talking to a trusted adult or
• Report it anonymously through the S2SS Office of the Attorney General 24/7 Crisis Center, mobile app, or website 
 
Southern Columbia's Safe2Say Something team has been engaged in training in use of the system as have members of the Police Departments serving the school community. The Office of Pennsylvania's Attorney General will publish the link to the anonymous reporting website and telephone tip number beginning Monday. Mobile apps will also be available for download on January 14th. Once released this information will be published on the District's website. Additional information and Safe2Say student and community training and outreach will be released by the Attorney General's Office in the coming weeks.
