New Bill Would Help People Tip Off School Violence

Posted: Updated:

LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - State lawmakers will soon consider a law that would guarantee anonymity for people who tip off law enforcement to possible school violence.

The measure is called "OK 2 Say" and it was introduced by Michigan Attourney General Bill Schuette. He says the bill could help stop tragedies before they happen.

"Students learn best in a safe environment, free from any dangerous threats," said Schuette in a release. "This legislation will help students break free from the culture of silence by providing them with a confidential resource to stop tragedy and violence before it occurs."

The program would accept tips by email, text message, phone call or through a mobile app.
