School hotline for reporting possible threats

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

A new school safety effort, SPEAK UP New Mexico, has been created by the state to offer students an anonymous tip line to report threats of weapon-related violence and other crimes at their schools and in their communities.

“As lieutenant governor, I am committed to keeping New Mexico’s families safe,” said Diane Denish in a news release. “New Mexico’s citizens are our first line of defense for violence prevention. We want to empower the community to Speak Up. While the focus is preventing gun violence, the anonymous tip line also takes calls to help fight against bullying, vandalism, and crime.”

The hotline is toll-free and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is staffed by professional crisis counselors and completely anonymous.

Los Alamos High School Principal Grace Brown is pleased to hear about the new hotline.

“Anytime we can offer a way for students to alert us to potential problems is a good thing,” she said. “Here at the high school we already have a campus crime stoppers program in which students can call to report to us. We encourage students to even report suspicions and we want them to feel confident that they can remain anonymous.”
