Safe2Say Something is a youth violence prevention program run by the Pennsylvania Office of Attorney General. The portal is a confidential reporting mechanism to help prevent violence and tragedies. The purpose is to recognize warning signs and signals, especially within social media, from individuals who may be a threat to themselves or others and to “say something” BEFORE it is too late. Please know, it is our preference that students and families report information to a trusted adult in the Riverview School District in order to gather the details necessary to complete a comprehensive investigation.
Please know that reports, themselves, are fielded by a “live” tip line specialist and subsequently shared with a number of community entities, including but not limited to: The Attorney General’s Office, the School District, the Verona and Oakmont police departments, the Verona and Oakmont fire departments, and any other Federal, State or Local entity that is germane to the report. The Office of Attorney General (OAG) encourages District Attorneys to investigate and file charges in the event of a false tip as a deterrent, and the OAG is prepared to assist local District Attorneys in these investigations. Therefore, please keep in mind that any misuse of this system is against the law and will be investigated to the fullest. There will be no anonymity given to false claims.
