‘OK2SAY’ aims to stop bullying and more

MARQUETTE — During his recent trip to the Upper Peninsula, Michigan Attorney General Bill Schuette talked about a program that prevents bullying and reduces student safety threats.

OK2SAY was created to stop harmful behavior before it even occurs. Michiganders can call, text, or email tips confidentially to trained people who will get that information in the hands of the proper authorities.

Schuette, carries around an OK2SAY sticker on his cell phone, says the program is a valuable tool that can help stop violence before it starts.

“Its 24/7, 365; the Michigan State Police does a great job of monitoring it,” said Schuette. “And when you text, email or call in, they alert the first, closest responder to try and assist the school as an example if there’s a problem.”
