How Rave Guardian Campus Safety App Works
The Rave Guardian Campus Safety App transforms mobile phones on your campus into personal safety devices.
Guardian enhances safety on campus through a virtual safety network of friends, family, and campus safety.
- Panic Button — direct immediate connection to campus safety with GPS location and personal profile information.
- Tip Texting –enables anonymous crime tip reporting and 2-way communication via SMS or mobile app
- Personal Guardians — Students can identify friends, roommates, and family as ‘Guardians’ along with Campus Safety. Students can set a Rave Guardian Timer. During a Timer session Guardians and Campus Safety can check status of student. If the Rave Guardian timer is not deactivated before it expires, campus safety is automatically provided with the user’s Rave Guardian profile to proactively identify and check-in on the individual.
Whenever students, faculty, or staff connect with campus safety from their mobile phone, the Rave Guardian Campus Safety App automatically delivers a complete caller profile – including current location, medical conditions, course schedule, addresses, campus ID photo and other critical data.
Rave Guardian is a Campus Safety Mobile App backed by a hosted, Software-as-a-Service platform.
Rave Guardian profile data is stored privately and securely within Rave’s redundant and geographically diverse databases. Guardian profile data is provided by the members of your community through Rave’s secure web-portal.
User-provided data can be further augmented by loading data from your school’s SIS system. With Rave Guardian, your community is always in control –profiles are shared only when a member of your community calls public safety, or allows a previously set Rave Guardian timer to expire.
