Get Involved - Schools

BPD SAFE PLACE is a safety initiative designed to assist the victims of hate/bias crime, student bullying and to encourage the reporting of these crimes.

How can my school participate?

  • Order decal(s)
  • Commit to the SAFE PLACE principles
  • Once your request is received, BPD's SAFE PLACE Coordinator will deliver or mail your decals and/or posters to your location and provide further training to you and/or your staff on the Seattle Police Department founded Safe Place concept. 
  • The decals shall be placed at the front entrance of the school office (if applicable).

What are my responsibilities?

Although the BPD SAFE PLACE program is free and voluntary, it is important that you educate your staff regarding their responsibilities:

  • To call school security and 911 if a criminal bullying incident occurs. 
  • To allow the student to remain in the office until police arrive.
