Mobile Safety App Adopted by N.Y. University

The Rave Guardian Campus Safety App has been adopted by over 100 colleges to improve student safety.

Stony Brook University in Long Island, New York has begun using a mobile safety app to improve student safety.

The Rave Guardian Campus Safety app by Rave Mobile Safety allows users to create a “virtual safety network” that allows “personal guardians” to monitor their movements and status updates. This month Stony Brook University, which has over 200 buildings for over 24,000 students, became one of over 100 colleges in the country to use the app.

Users create a “Safety Timer” that approved guardians can track in real time. If the timer expires or the user initiates a panic call Rave Guardian alerts appropriate campus safety resources.

The app also improves crime reporting efficiency with a button users can press to immediately connect with campus safety and a feature that allows users to anonymously communicate with campus safety officials. Students can also plug “Safety Profiles” into the app that give information such as residence addresses and medical information.
