Nashville, TN – Tennessee Governor Bill Lee and the Tennessee Department of Security and Homeland Security have urged Tennessee residents to prepare for the new school year by downloading the SafeTN application.
The SafeTN app gives every Tennessean a direct line to confidentially report suspicious or concerning activity in schools.
Concerns and advice are reviewed by law enforcement 24/7 to respond to circumstances such as:
- Violence or aggression
- Threats of violence or planned attack
- Physical injury or harm to self or others
In the coming weeks, the Lee administration will share data and next steps for the recent Executive Decree to improve school safety throughout Tennessee. Additional resources will be provided to parents, schools and law enforcement throughout the fall.
