— Daniel Lee
LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2023 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kokomo24/7®, a leading health, safety, and wellness software platform, announced today that the Los Angeles Unified School District is adopting Kokomo’s latest tool in the effort to prevent violence at schools: an anonymous tip line available to students and administrators via website and mobile app.
LAUSD students, staff, and community members will now use Kokomo24/7®’s digital tip line to anonymously report concerning public safety incidents in school and around Los Angeles County. In a February 14th statement, LAUSD Superintendent Alberto M. Carvalho said the software will help the district prioritize “community-focused public safety.”
School districts nationwide are adopting anonymous tip lines, recognizing them to be an important violence prevention resource.
– A study by the Pew Research Center found that the number of US schools with a structured anonymous threat-reporting system doubled from 2010 to 2020.
– Data from the Department of Education shows that, in 4 out of 5 school shootings, at least one other person had knowledge of the attacker’s plan but failed to report it.
Kokomo24/7®’s founder, Daniel Lee, has over 26 years of experience working in health and safety as a solutions architect for the New York City Counter-Terrorism Bureau, FEMA, Microsoft, and others. Regarding LAUSD’s adoption of the company’s digital tip line, Lee said: “It breaks my heart to see repeated instances of schools and communities experiencing violence. We hope this new violence prevention tool will help create a safer environment for students and the broader Los Angeles community.”
The anonymous tip line is the latest addition to the set of health, safety, and violence prevention capabilities which Kokomo24/7® provides and is in the process of providing to LAUSD, which also includes: incident management, a digital emergency alert button, event management health and wellness management, visitor management, classroom observation management, asset management, field service management, patrolling management, communications management, and feedback management.
