Tennessee Governor Bill Lee Tells Parents To Download SafeTN App For Back To School – Clarksville Online

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.

“Every Tennessean has an active role to play in keeping the school safe, and that starts with downloading the Safe TN app,” Lee said. “As students return to school this month, the SafeTN app is an easy way for parents and guardians to quickly and confidentially report safety concerns.”

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.
