MPS, in partnership with the Minneapolis Police Department (MPD) and the Mayor's Youth Violence Prevention Blueprint, has launched an anonymous youth tip-line called "Speak Up Minneapolis." This tip-line allows youth from across the city to phone or text reports of potential violence including weapons in schools, parks, libraries or other locations. Trained Counselors are available parks, libraries or other locations. Trained Counselors are available 24 hours a day to take detailed summaries of the potential threat and will then phone an email a complete report to MPD and district Emergency Management and Safety & Security staff. School Principals and Community Agency Leads at potentially impacted sites will then be contacted so a comprehensive response plan can be created and implemented.
