About

The Missouri School Violence Hotline (SVH) began in October of 2001. In 2019, through the Missouri School Safety Initiative, the reporting mechanism moved to the Missouri Information Analysis Center for 24/7 operation and was named Courage2ReportMO. The goal is to make schools safer by helping school districts and law enforcement learn about school violence as soon as possible. Courage2ReportMO takes CONFIDENTIAL reports involving any public or private school in Missouri with students in pre-kindergarten through 12th grade.

What should be reported?

Any threat to life that happens on school property or the school bus should be reported to C2R. This may include:

  • Assault - Physical
  • Sexual Offense
  • Weapons
  • Human Trafficking
  • Planned School Attack
  • School Shooting
  • Planned Suicide
  • Terrorism Threat-Extremism

Who can report it?

We encourage anyone who learns about school violence to report it. Reports are accepted from:

  • Parents
  • School personnel
  • Students
  • Concerned citizens
  • Confidential reporters

What happens after I make a report?

When a report is made to the C2R, information is gathered from the reporter and entered into a centralized database. This information is then immediately disseminated to the school and law enforcement with jurisdiction.

Officials with the school and law enforcement will then determine how to appropriately handle each report.
