School Safety Committee. Under current law, the safe2tell program is required to provide awareness and educational materials to preschools. The bill repeals this requirement.
The bill requires the safe2tell program to:
- Devise a process so that all calls and texts are received initially by a crisis operator and then non-crisis calls and texts are routed appropriately;
- Align the process and procedures for tips received via all communication methods; and
- Conduct an annual advertising campaign regarding awareness, use, and misuse of safe2tell.
The bill allows the attorney general to disclose to law enforcement personnel any materials or information obtained through the implementation or operation of the program if the attorney general reasonably deems such disclosure necessary for the prevention of imminent physical harm or serious bodily injury to one or more persons.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
