The North Canton City School District is enrolled in a statewide tip line that is monitored 24 hours a day with the ability to contact law enforcement and school administrators should the need arise. It is 844-SAFER-OH. This can be done anonymously by call or text, 24-hours a day. Please encourage your students to "Say Something if They Hear Something." Often our students are the first line of defense in preventing school tragedies.
The Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Public Safety's SaferOH tip line accepts both calls and texts 24 hours a day for schools that register for the service.
This tip line allows students and adults to anonymously share information with school officials and law enforcement about threats to student safety—whether that involves a threatened mass incident or harm to a single student.
Every tip can remain anonymous. School safety analysts may ask for additional information, but the caller can remain secret or leave his or her contact information for later follow-up.
Calls or texts to 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764) are answered by analysts in the Ohio Homeland Security’s Threat Assessment and Prevention (TAP) Unit. When action is needed, the TAP Unit immediately forwards information to local school officials, local law enforcement agencies and others, if necessary.
TAP Unit analysts always follow up quickly with the affected school and law enforcement agencies to make sure that the incident is investigated, action is taken and the outcome is tracked.
