BE INVOLVED IN SCHOOL SAFETY
If you observe or overhear your child or their friends share concerns for their safety or the safety of others, Safe+Sound Iowa is here for you - and them.
By making an anonymous report, trained dispatchers immediately vet and share the information with the appropriate local school and/or law enforcement contacts so help can be given to the student in crisis or at risk for violence.
