CA Bay Area Schools Getting ‘Say Something’ Safety App

0 1

Two Contra Costa County, CA, schools will be the first in the Bay Area to launch a new app aimed at preventing harm—be it violence, bullying, self-harm or other threatening behavior, NBC Bay Area reports. The Say Something anonymous reporting system, created by national violence prevention program Sandy Hook Promise, works with local law enforcement agencies to allow students to send anonymous and confidential tips via email, phone or app. According to Sandy Hook Promise, in 80 percent of school shootings the gunman either told someone about their plan or showed some sort of warning sign. The Martinez Unified and Brentwood Union School Districts will be launching the app first, with six other Bay Area districts taking the app live this year.
