Safe2Tell sends each report to local schools and law enforcement, maintaining the anonymity of the reporting party, who is protected by Colorado state law (C.R.S. Section 24-31-601 et seq.). The suggestions on this page guide report recipients in successfully responding to and closing out Safe2Tell reports.
What are best practices?
Although content and circumstances vary for each report, the goal is prevention and awareness through education and training. It is not necessary to inform parties that the information was obtained through a Safe2Tell report. Safe2Tell recommends not leading conversations with Safe2Tell as the source of information as that can move the conversation away from resolving the concern and instead toward wanting to see the report. Sharing report contents (including forwarding or copying information in the report) is not permitted (C.R.S. Section 24-31-607) in order to maintain anonymity of the reporting party. If you need to assign someone else to handle the report who did not receive the report initially, please contact 1-877-542-7233 and request the re-assignment.
Remember that information from Safe2Tell reports cannot be copied outside of the Safe2Tell report management software (C.R.S. Section 24-31-607). However, the report ID number can be used.

If more information becomes available, P3 will be updated.
You should only indicate you received an anonymous report but should not specify that it came from Safe2Tell. It is not necessary to articulate that a Safe2Tell report has been received.
While Safe2Tell reserves the right to use anonymized report content to describe incidents and outcomes for program purposes, the identity of particular schools and/or districts will not be disclosed.
Safe2Tell compiles data for the state of Colorado as a whole. Information posted to the Safe2Tell website, including monthly and yearly data reports, are public domain. Safe2Tell only releases district and school data to authorized school/district personnel. All P3 users have the authority to access data for all of their schools. If you require assistance on this, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, you may update the report regardless of another organization’s involvement so that Safe2Tell has a complete record of the report outcome. Multiple dispositions may be submitted on each report.
A closed report informs Safe2Tell that you have received the report, have completed an initial investigation, and have a plan for moving forward. Adding additional information in the disposition/in progress notes tab will help document your response and inform all parties.
Anonymity laws protect the individual who made the report. Individuals listed in the report who need intervention may be contacted, interviewed, investigated, etc. as determined by the designated school representative, law enforcement officer, or involved community agency.
