School Safety

  • Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:

    The safety and security of our students, staff and schools remain the highest priorities for Broward County Public

    Schools (BCPS). We encourage everyone to ‘say something if you see something’ because the safety of our
    schools is the collective responsibility of the entire community.

    We want to make you aware of a couple of resources that have been developed to improve public safety by
    allowing individuals to report potential threats and suspicious activity. These free mobile phone apps are both
    available for download on Apple’s App Store and Google’s Play Store.

  • SaferWatch

  • Anonymous Tip Line

    As a reminder, BCPS also monitors its own anonymous tip line for reporting potential school threats or other school-related safety and security concerns. Parents and students can report tips in a number of ways.
    They can:

  • Please remember these methods of reporting are NOT a replacement for calling 9-1-1, when there is a crime in
    progress or an emergency. BCPS encourages parents and students to be vigilant in reporting all suspicious
    activity to the appropriate authorities, regardless of your preferred method of communication. Working together,
    we can improve the safety in schools and our community.
