Following the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary School, legislation was passed to examine the efficiency and cost of implementing a school emergency notification system. As a result of this study, the Suffolk County Police Department enacted the School Active Violence Emergency (SAVE) Hotline. The SAVE hotline is open to all public/private schools, daycare facilities, and colleges within the police district.
The SAVE Hotline is a rapid, reliable, inexpensive system that is simple to utilize. Using a dedicated phone line placed in one or several locations throughout a building, the system automatically bypasses normal communication channels and immediately dials the Suffolk County Police 911 center supervisor. The supervisor views an instant display of the exact incident location and can provide immediate verbal communication to the caller. Additionally, the caller will be kept on the line to provide additional details as events unfold.
You can register for the program by filling out the SAVE Registration Form.
