A group of school officials affiliated with the Fulton County school district have launched an innovative new smartphone app, dubbed QuickTip, that is designed to make it easier than ever for everyone involved in a school to contribute to school security by making it possible for them to anonymously send tips to police in the event that they notice unacceptable or potentially dangerous behavior.

The app, which can be downloaded onto smartphone devices for free, makes it possible for users to quickly and anonymously send tips and reports of suspicious or threatening behavior to Fulton County school police.

By promising anonymity, the QuickTip empowers more people to proactively summon police if they perceive a behavior to be threatening.
