Menlo College Enhances Campus Safety with LiveSafe Mobile App
August 29, 2014:
Menlo College launched a new mobile safety app, LiveSafe, that provides students and faculty with a way to enhance campus safety.
Menlo College launched a new mobile safety app that provides students and faculty a new channel to get in touch with the authorities. Called LiveSafe, the mobile application helps build a safer campus by providing a fast and efficient channel of communication between students and campus safety officials. Menlo College, already one of the safest campuses in the country, remains committed to maintaining safety for its students and community. The app is available as a free download to students and their parents, faculty, staff, and members of the community.
Leveraging the latest in smartphone technology, LiveSafe transforms the way students respond to threats and safety emergencies. The app’s user-friendly interface makes it easy for people to share information—anonymously, if they wish—and stay updated on any alerts reported in the area.
“We remain committed to maintaining the highest level of safety for students and the community. We want to provide the best tools to keep students safe, and we’re excited about what this new service provides,” said Allan Chen, Chief Information Officer, Menlo College.
Through iPhone and Android devices, users now have the ability to report GPS-tagged information with added picture, video, and audio clips. Additionally, campus authorities are able to send safety alerts to members of the Menlo College community to keep them informed about the latest safety updates.
Members of the campus community, including students, staff, faculty, and parents are encouraged to download the free app from the iTunes or Google Play stores for their iPhone and Android devices.
