Reporting threats, crimes through Berkeley County School District’s App

Berkeley County News

BERKELEY COUNTY, S.C. (WCBD) – The Berkeley County School District is hopeful students and parents will continue to use the district’s app to report threats and crime this school year.

The app tool was rolled out last year, and people used it to report 100 incidents of crimes and threats within the school district.

Tim Knight, the Safety and Security Coordinator for the district, said he felt it was a huge success.

“The great thing with that new tool in the app, is that not only can anybody access it, but you can remain anonymous — and I know today a lot of people feel very comfortable with those anonymous reporting tools,” he said.

While many of the reports were unfounded, they were all investigated, according to Knight.

He hopes more people will use the app to report concerns and he said you can remain anonymous.
