SafeOregon tip line takes aim at teens and bullying

Thursday, June 6, 2019

The Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association has partnered with middle and high school students to produce a public service announcement highlighting SafeOregon, a school safety tip line available to students statewide.

The SafeOregon public service announcement will air in television markets throughout Oregon. The tip line gives kids, parents, schools and their communities a way to report safety threats or potential acts of violence. More than 3,000 tips have been received during the two years since the line launched.

Students can submit safety concerns via text, call, website, or through the SafeOregon App. “We know many kids in school may be struggling and we want them to know help is available,” said Craig Roberts, president of the Oregon State Sheriffs’ Association.

The students participated in the public service announcement along with sheriff personnel from across the state.

The SafeOregon public service announcement can be viewed by doing a search on Google for “YouTube SafeOregon campaign.”
