Governor Hogan Announces the Official Launch of the Safe Schools Maryland Tip Line 

Last Updated on Oct 10, 2018 at 2:40pm

Governor Larry Hogan announced last week the launch of “Safe Schools Maryland,” a tip line and mobile app designed to streamline reporting of possible threats to students and school facilities. The Governor made the announcement at the Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) with student leaders, education officials, members of law enforcement and others in attendance. Safe Schools Maryland is a tip line and mobile app designed to streamline reporting of possible threats to students and school facilities.
Students, family members, parents, teachers, administrators, and other community members can anonymously report information to Safe Schools Maryland via a mobile app available for download through the Apple App Store or Google Play, online at, or by calling 1-833-MD-B-SAFE (1-833-632-7233). Trained technicians will respond to reports 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year.

The tip line staff will share incoming information with appropriate school system officials and staff; law enforcement personnel; fire, emergency, behavioral health, and medical staff; and other partners to help prevent violent or dangerous incidents at schools around the state and provide assistance to students in crisis. Students, parents, teachers, administrative staff, and others should be vigilant and report any activity that makes them feel uncomfortable, nervous, or frightened about the safety of their school, themselves, or others.
Northern Middle School sent 5 student council members to the School Safety Tip Line Campaign Kick-Off Event at the Maryland Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) at their headquarters in Reisterstown, Maryland.
