ARLINGTON, Va. – Jeff Grass, Executive Chairman of LiveSafe, will describe how smartphone technology is creating a new culture of safety on college and university campuses nationwide.

Since being founded only 18 months ago by an assault victim and a survivor of the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre, LiveSafe has been able to address needs in the market that were previously underserved; it has since expanded beyond college campuses to businesses, sports arenas, and the military.

The FCC’s Public Safety and Homeland Security Bureau has asked LiveSafe to join a prestigious group of technologists and policy experts at a public workshop on developments in the use of smartphones and other devices to interact with emergency services.

When LiveSafe users reach out for help, they can include text, audio, images, and even video – and send key information anonymously, if they choose. Additionally, LiveSafe gets permission from its users to capture the location data provided by either Android or iOS. All of this information is housed within a secure, cloud-based environment, and can be easily used by security officials with access.
