Enhancing Safety and Security on Campus

With the LiveSafe app, you have a fast and direct connection to the University of New 51 Police Department, twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. Not just for emergencies, the app can help you — and us — be more pro-active in keeping everyone in our community safer.

Get to know LiveSafe’s features:
  • See something? Say something. Does something look suspicious to you? Share that through the "Report Suspicious Activity" feature. You can attach a photo, video, or audio file. Do it anonymously, if you wish.
  • Something already happened? The "Report Incident" feature allows you to quickly and easily submit a report with just a few taps.
  • You or someone else is in serious trouble? The "Emergency Options" feature allows University police to pinpoint your location more quickly. The UPD can also engage in a real-time text conversation with you in order to gather crucial details about what’s happening.
  • Want to know exactly where you are? The Safety Map tells you where you stand in relation to University buildings, places of safety, and more.
  • Want a virtual guardian angel? Feel safer walking alone at night with the SafeWalk feature, which is a peer-to-peer virtual escort tool that allows permitted friends or family to follow your location through the app or on a secured website. If you don’t arrive at your intended location, they can contact you to ensure you’re safe or use your last-known location to contact emergency personnel.
