Social Work Safe Voice

The SafeVoice program is grounded in best practices research. The Nevada Departments of Education and Public Safety partnered with Pacific Institute for Research and Evaluation (PIRE) to secure a grant from the National Institute of Justice (2016-CK-BX-0007) to support the implementation of the tip line and to research the extent to which the tip line, coupled with the multidisciplinary teams, prevent harmful events. Nevada’s approach is to integrate education, law enforcement, and behavioral health agencies in response to student concerns and school safety threats brought forward through this new reporting system. SafeVoice empowers students to report any situation that may put their friends, themselves or their school at risk. In the classroom, teachers have materials to discuss risky behaviors and steps students can take to stop or prevent issues.

Students can use the SafeVoice tool to report concerns about their friends or themselves by visiting, calling 833-216-SAFE or downloading the SafeVoice app.
