The Hillsdale County Sheriff's Office is participating in the OK2SAY program to help students confidentially report anything that threatens their safety or the safety of others. The program was introduced July 1, 2014 and is operational as of September 2014 in Michigan. The OK2SAY program will create an early warning system in our schools to stop tragedies before they start by giving students a confidential way to submit tips which will be analyzed and submitted to the School and Law Enforcment; and if necessary, Mental Health and Department of Human Services agencies.
The person will be able to submit their tip via telephone, text, email, mobile app or Confidential Online Tip form while their personal information will remain confidential. The Hillsdale County Sheriff Office encourages students, parents and administrators to take advantage of this new program to help students break the culture of silence and make our schools safer.
