From September 3-10, Sheriff’s Deputies responded to 839 calls for service/events.  Our higher call volumes occurred in the following areas:  Traffic stops-219, Suspicious Subject/Situation/Vehicle-46, Assist Citizen/Motor Assist-41, Traffic Violations-37, Alarms-34, Shoplifting Complaints-25, Check Well-Beings-22, Traffic Hazards-21, Domestic Disputes-18, Property Damage Crashes-15, Loud Noise-13, Civil Complaint-12, Argument or Verbal Altercation-11, Personal Injury Crashes-11, Unwanted Subject-10, and Threats-10. 

With our kids being just a few weeks into their school year, I wanted to give you and them information on an important student safety program – OK2SAY.   Maybe your kids are already familiar with it, so this will be a reminder that this confidential tool is available to them and could save their life and the lives of their friends and classmates.  

OK2SAY is the student safety program which allows students to confidentially report tips on potential harm or criminal activities directed at school students, school employees, and schools. It uses a comprehensive communication system to facilitate tip sharing among students, parents, school personnel, community mental health service programs, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, and law enforcement officials about harmful behaviors that threaten to disrupt the learning environment.

The goal of OK2SAY is to stop harmful behavior before it occurs by encouraging anyone to report threatening behavior to caring adult authorities who can help. OK2SAY encourages Michigan residents to confidentially submit tips 24/7 using the OK2SAY mobile app, OK2SAY website, email, texting, or by calling trained program technicians.  The following are ways anyone can report tips confidentially on criminal activities or potential harm directed at students, school employees, or schools:

Call: 8-555-OK2SAY (855-565-2729)

Text: 652729 (OK2SAY)

Email: OK2SAY@mi.gov

So, let’s stand up for student safety.  Remember:  it’s OK2SAY.

Yours in Public Safety,

Sheriff Tom Reich
