Syracuse University students, faculty, and staff are encouraged to download LiveSafe, a nationally-recognized mobile app used at universities nationwide. LiveSafe is designed to offer direct connectivity with the DPS emergency dispatch center from users’ cell phones. Just download “LiveSafe” for free to your iPhone or Android, sign up with your school email address, and connect the app with “Syracuse University.”
The app acts as a “mobile blue light,” integrating GPS location information when users contact the emergency dispatch center through the app. It features a function called “SafeWalk” that permits users to virtually share their location with friends as they walk to a destination. App users may also send tips regarding crimes in progress or potentially unsafe situations through the app, and can attach photo and video to provide DPS with further information.
To download the app on your Android or iOS smart phone, click here. You will be directed to a web page where you may enter your cell phone number for a direct download of the Syracuse University version of the app.
