HOW does it work?
STOPit works in 3 easy steps. STOPit personnel will train administrators, students and adults in each step ensuring understanding and ultimately driving program use.
Step 1) Observe & Submit
Individual observes a safety, misconduct, or compliance concern in-person, on- line or through other means and submits their incident using the STOPit app, website, or telephone hotline.
Step 2) Monitor & Escalate
The STOPit Incident Management Center receives, reviews, and, when needed, escalates any emergencies to designated organization contacts and/or law enforcement, via direct phone call, to ensure all emergencies receive immediate attention.
Step 3) Manage & Resolve
Designated organization contacts receive instant alerts, via text, email, and phone call (escalated submissions only) to begin the process of assessing, managing, and resolving a life or non-life threating incident. Law enforcement and other resources are brought in as needed.
Onboarding & Training
STOPit provides comprehensive onboarding and training for program administrators AND training for students and adults on how to recognize safety, misconduct, and/or compliance concerns via in-person, live virtual or self-led learning management system. Depending on the size of your organization, average time from onboarding to launch is 3-6 weeks.

WHAT will be the impact of this program?
Over 6,000 K-12 schools, colleges & universities, workplaces, and public safety & government organizations use STOPit resulting in tens of thousands of students and adults getting the help … and for many … saving their life or the lives of others.
