Illinois School Violence Tip Line

The Illinois State Police will administer the School Violence Tip-Line which will provide a means for students to report threats of violence and weapons violations on school grounds.  The statewide toll-free number is 1-800-477-0024, will be physically answered at the ISP Communications Center in Springfield.

Calls will be answered by state police employees who will forward the information to the local sheriff's or police department and the appropriate ISP district.  The local law enforcement agency will be responsible for notifying the school at which the violent act is occurring.  If the school is not in their community they will insure that the proper law enforcement agency and school are notified immediately.

In the event the caller is in a crisis, the ISP telecommunicator will transfer the call to the designated mental health worker.  The School Violence Tip-Line should not be use for emergency situations.  In an emergency situation, call your local police/fire agency at 911. 

The School Violence Tip-Line will be publicized through the use of posters, brochures, and public service announcements. Emphasis will be to encourage students to "speak up" and tell a teacher or counselor if they have seen a weapon or believe a violent incident is to take place.

The Tip-Line is an option in those cases when the caller fears reprisal or if the Caller is considering committing acts of violence and is unwilling to sacrifice Anonymity.
