  • Emergency Call

    • Users can quickly place an emergency call to 911 or campus security through the app. If someone is off campus or traveling abroad, the emergency call button automatically routes to the local emergency management services

  • SOS Panic
    • SOS Panic Button Icon (red square with explanation mark)
    • The app includes a panic button, which can send an SOS request to the campus emergency dispatcher with a single touch. When the button is pressed, the phone's video functionality automatically launches, records what is happening, and transmits the video and audio in real time with the SOS request to the emergency dispatcher
  • Safe Corridor
    • Safe Corridor Icon (light blue square with shoe prints)
    • The mobile app also allows users to proactively send check-in notifications to campus police if they are in a potentially vulnerable situation, such as walking across campus late at night by themselves. If the user doesn't check in at the prescribed interval once they have activated the 'safe corridor,' campus police will be dispatched to the user's last known location to ensure they are safe.
