School Safety Committee. Under current law, the safe2tell
program is required to provide awareness and educational materials to
preschools. The bill repeals this requirement.
The bill requires the safe2tell program to:
  • Devise a process so that all calls and texts are received
initially by a crisis operator and then non-crisis calls and
texts are routed appropriately;
  • Align the process and procedures for tips received via all

communication methods; and
  • Conduct an annual advertising campaign regarding
awareness, use, and misuse of safe2tell.
The bill allows the attorney general to disclose to law enforcement
personnel any materials or information obtained through the
implementation or operation of the program if the attorney general
reasonably deems such disclosure necessary for the prevention of
imminent physical harm or serious bodily injury to one or more persons.
