Pennsylvania's Safe2Say Something reporting system is intended to facilitate the reporting of sensitive information to our administration and school police officers including information regarding student safety, bullying, violence, drug use or students who may be in need of any type of assistance.
This information may be shared with school officials such as
principals, school counselors and other administrative personnel as well as
school police officers or other law enforcement depending on the situation.
It is NOT an emergency hotline. If you need immediate assistance and/or are reporting an event that could immediately affect the school community, please call 911 to be connected to Ross Township Police and/or West View Borough Police.
North Hills School District encourages students, staff and community members to report information about any non-urgent illegal activity such as vandalism, theft, the sale of drugs or information about crimes that are being planned. Students who discover information on social media platforms like Snapchat, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or YouTube and confidentially report a tip could help prevent a tragedy. Once again, for urgent matters or emergency situations, please call 911 and speak to a trained dispatcher.
North Hills School District highly respects and cares for your privacy. Any information reported will be kept strictly confidential.
We encourage you to use the Safe2Say Something system responsibly. Adverse consequences, including serious criminal charges (see below), may result from the submission of a false report. All submissions can be traced in the event of misuse or abuse of the reporting system.
§ 4906. False reports to law enforcement authorities
(a) Falsely incriminating another. -- Except as provided in subsection (c), a person who knowingly gives false information to any law enforcement officer with intent to implicate another commits a misdemeanor of the second degree.
(b) Fictitious reports. -- Except as provided in subsection (c), a person commits a misdemeanor of the third degree if he:
(1) reports to law enforcement authorities an offense or other incident
within their concern knowing that it did not occur; or
(2) pretends to furnish such authorities with information relating to an
offense or incident when he knows he has no information relating to such
offense or incident.
(1) If the violation of subsection (a) or (b) occurs during a declared
state of emergency and the false report causes the resources of the law
enforcement authority to be diverted from dealing with the declared state of
emergency, the offense shall be graded one step greater than that set forth in
the applicable subsection.
(2) If the violation of subsection (a) or (b) relates to a false report
of the theft or loss of a firearm, as defined in section 5515 (relating to
prohibiting of paramilitary training), the offense shall be graded one step
greater than that set forth in the applicable subsection.
