Wisconsin School Anonymous Tip Line Receives 1,000 Tips in 3 Months

The tip line is a statewide confidential reporting system designed to be a safe place for students, school staff, and community members to share information concerning potential school violence.

Madison, Wisconsin — The Wisconsin Department of Justice (DOJ) Office of School Safety (OSS) announced on Thursday that it has received more than 1,000 tips to the Speak Up, Speak Out (SUSO) tip line between September 1 and December 1.

The tip line is a statewide confidential reporting system designed to be a safe place for students, school staff, and community members to share information concerning potential school violence.

“SUSO is helping to keep students safe in schools around the state,” said Attorney General Josh Kaul. “Thank you to the analysts who ensure that SUSO is available to help 24/7, and thank you to those who’ve used SUSO to report concerns.”

The department is reminding Wisconsin residents that as schools take a break for the holidays, this tip line will be open 24/7.

“SUSO is available 24/7,” the department said in a press release. “School holidays can be stressful for some children – they may experience boredom, isolation, inactivity and limited access to naturally occurring social support from peers and mentors, including school based trusted adults. SUSO is available anytime day or night to address concerns effectively and efficiently.”
