GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KJCT News)-- In the monthly report for December, Safe2Tell is seeing a continued increase in tips.

Data across the state shows that the monthly tip volume is continuing to rise when compared to the previous school year. Here in Mesa County there were 79 Safe2Tell tips for District 51 in the month of December. In November they saw only 65.

"If they can have a number to call or go visit a website, or especially popular is the app that you can download and then you can do anonymous texting, that's a great way for students to have some kind of outlet, some kind of way to tell something without necessarily coming forward or putting their name or their face out there," says Emily Shockley with D51.

For the current school year, Safe2Tell has received over 11,000 tips statewide. Suicide threats, drugs and bullying continued to be the top categories of tips reported.
