Utah State University Releases Campus Safety App

KSL TV Thursday, Aug. 22, 2019


Utah State University has released rolling out a new app that campus police say will help put safety resources, right at their fingertips. It could also help them find people who need help faster, through GPS tracking. The fall semester is just under a week away, but incoming freshmen have already been busy preparing and getting more familiar with the campus. Coming from the state of Washington, Kelli Munn said she just happened to come across one unexpected tool that might help her – the Utah State Safe App. “I was looking at apps that I needed to download for school and I thought it’s probably a really good thing for me to have as a freshman, and just anyone on campus,” she said. Safe Utah State launched earlier this week and is similar to the statewide safety and crisis app, Safe UT. A publicity campaign designed to get more students signed up in the app will start as classes begin. ... The Utah State Safe App also has links to counseling, and support, as well as resources for faculty and staff who may need to help a student in distress or who might be exhibiting mental health concerns. Campus Police will be out telling students about the app as classes begin next week.
