Your Eyes & Ears Could Save Lives!

The Westlake City School District participates in SaferSchools Ohio, an anonymous tip line through the Ohio Department of Education and the Ohio Department of Public Safety. The SaferOH tip line accepts calls and text message 24/7.

The 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 individual.

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.
