BALTIMORE, Ohio (AP) - The state’s public safety director and schools superintendent are traveling to promote a new anonymous tip line designed to alert local law enforcement officials to school safety issues around Ohio.

Director John Born and Superintendent Richard Ross were scheduled to visit Baltimore, 30 miles southeast of Columbus, on Wednesday to honor Liberty Union High School as one of the first to sign up for SaferOH. The free tip line accepts calls or texts 24 hours a day at 844-SaferOH (844-723-3764).

The district superintendent, school principal and the Baltimore police chief were also scheduled to attend.

Gov. John Kasich (KAY’-sik) requested that Ohio launch the service in the face of statistics showing 80 percent of violent incidents in U.S. schools were known about but not reported in advance.
