Comments: I am concerned about shootings in the public school system. I live in Indiana and wonder if there is an anonymous hot line where you can call. Say if you heard a child talk about shooting another class mate. How can this be reported without getting in the middle of it?

Thank you,

Thank you for your concern.

You can call your local police department, explain your concerns and your desire for anonymity, and ask to speak to a detective ASAP. They will honor your anonymity and quickly act to prevent a tragedy.

P.S. Please keep me informed as to your results.


The police are extremely responsive to school violence – especially gun crimes. An innocently, well-intentioned false alarm is certainly better than a tragedy. Too many times a lifesaving tip-off was never made. The old cliché is indeed true: Better Safe Than Sorry.
