New App Turns Mobile Device into Personal Safety Guardian
Capital University has added a new app to its safety communication tools to help keep our community safe. The Rave Guardian app is a virtual mobile safety tool that turns your cell phone into a personal safety device. Separate from the CapAlert emergency notification system, which sends you texts and emails during an emergency, the Rave Guardian app is a personal alarm system, and crime-reporting and emergency-call tool all in one. Guardian is a personal alarm system that will notify people you trust — friends, family or authorities — if you're someplace unfamiliar, if you're in trouble, or if you don't reach your destination on time. You can also call campus police or 911 directly, and — through the EyeWitness "Send a Tip" button on the app — report crime or suspicious activity.Rave Guardian and Eye Witness enable you to be the eyes and ears of Capital police by reporting suspicious or criminal activity, or inappropriate behavior, on Capital's campuses. Communicate directly with campus police anonymously with EyeWitness via text messaging technology. Reporting crime is quick, easy, secure and discrete. Some examples of inappropriate or criminal activity you can report include reporting bullying, hazing, fighting, social media abuse, vandalism, burglary or possession of illegal drugs on the premises.
