Madigan alerts residents to School Violence Tipline

Posted by on Saturday, February 17th, 2018 @ 9:15 am.

CHICAGO - Attorney General Lisa Madigan Friday alerted Illinois residents to the School Violence Tipline for anyone to anonymously report threats of violence or weapons violations on school grounds.

Madigan urged Illinois residents to be aware of the School Violence Tipline, at 1-800-477-0024, that was created to provide an anonymous way to report any threat of violence or weapons.

The tipline is answered by trained Illinois State Police telecommunicators who will refer the reports to local law enforcement agencies. If a caller is distressed or in need of immediate help, the call can be immediately forwarded to a mental health crisis worker. For immediate threats of violence or harm, callers are urged to contact 911.

The Attorney General’s Office distributes posters to schools to inform students and teachers to the Tipline. For copies of the poster, contact Madigan’s office at 312-814-0991. For more information, visit Madigan’s website.
