New app intended to enhance Ky. campus safety
Users can report suspicious or criminal activity to University Police and can remain anonymous
MURRAY, Ky. — Murray State University students have a new tool to help enhance campus safety.
The LiveSafe app is free from iTunes and Android stores. The university is encouraging students, parents, faculty and staff to download the app to their phones.
The application is a two-way communication tool for emergencies and non-emergencies. Users can report suspicious or criminal activity to University Police and can remain anonymous.
The app allows users to have a friend or parent follow them through campus, using location services, and see them arrive at their destination. Users can also contact the Racer Patrol at Murray State through the app to request safety escort service.
Online campus resources are also available through the app, and a safety map can help users navigate the campus.
