Are you in crisis?
We recognize that even with safety procedures in place, security issues can still arise. One important aspect of creating safe environments that are not overlooked in Berrien County is making connections that help people feel safe in providing information either directly or anonymously when they have evidence of harassment, bullying, or threats to safety.
While we encourage anyone with information about safety issues to speak directly to an adult that can help, or local law enforcement, we have provided specific information to our community, parents and students about State of Michigan’s OK2SAY Tip Line.
It is a 24-hour source designed to empower all members of the community to report safety concerns so that appropriate local personnel can respond. The OK2SAY number is 1-855-565-2729, you can text to 652729; or you can send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
As another set of eyes and ears, we encourage our community members to keep these lines of communication open.
