As the needs of colleges and universities continue to change, higher education leaders must strive to meet growing expectations and Clery Act requirements.
Campus Safety presentations aren’t enough to reach and engage with every student on campus. You can reach more students with a two-way communications app that empowers students to interact with campus police in a way they are most comfortable with, texting.
Campus Police can leverage texting, anonymous tip submission, virtual escorts, and direct dial to campus police, to break down barriers and build meaningful relationships. A two-way communications app branded for your campus builds positive relationships between students and campus police and empowers students to share timely safety and security information.
Schools, churches, outdoor events. There are a growing number of targets in each of our communities. Delay in notifying Campus Safety of suspicious activity or threats slows down the resolution of any incidents putting your campus’s safety at risk.
Technology today enables fast action by those on and off campus to send anonymous tips or trigger a panic call direct to Campus Safety. With two clicks, an emergency notification can be sent for an evacuation to clear the area enabling Campus Safety to respond to the scene.
The more information responders have before they arrive at the scene improves their response time, situational awareness, and could save a life.
Segregated departments and siloed communications deny higher education institutions the crucial information they need to respond and coordinate a response during an on-going incident.
When parents and the media require real-time updates, staff cannot waste time organizing dial-ins and call lists. Instead, a 1-click conference bridge gets everyone on the line instantly to execute the plan.
Since there’s no limit to the number messages, or recipients, every selected staff member can send internal notifications for fast communication that prevents delayed response and misinformation.
