Speak Out Hotline


SpeakOut Hotline wants every student to know - telling isn't 'snitching'. Telling is when you need to keep yourself or someone you know safe from threats, harmful behaviors or dangerous situations. To make a report, call 1-800-423-TIPS from anywhere, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The call is free.  Or text "SPEAKOUT" plus your tip information to CRIMES (274637). You will always stay 100% anonymous! No one will ask for your name or number. There is no caller I.D., no I.P. tracking, and no call recording. We only want the information that you have to provide so that we can help.

Anyone with information concerning the vandalism to the Oviedo High School campus is urged to call Crimeline 800.423.8477. You may also provide information at www.crimeline.org or down load our free tip app P3. If your information leads to an arrest or solving the case you could be eligible for a reward of up to $1000.
