ARLINGTON, Va. – Texas Southern University has become the first university in Texas to implement the LiveSafe mobile safety communications platform in a move to enhance safety for students, faculty and staff. The addition of LiveSafe puts TSU on the cutting edge of safety technology in the state.
LiveSafe, used by more than 120 colleges and universities across the country, is a discreet, two-way communications platform that provides a quick, convenient way to communicate directly with TSU Police through an app.
“We chose to partner with LiveSafe because we are building a comprehensive approach for our campus community to receive timely and vital information,” said Remon Green, TSU’s Chief of Police and Executive Director of Public Safety. “Since launching LiveSafe, we’ve received enthusiastic reviews from our campus community because of features the platform offers.”
LiveSafe allows users to send text, photos, videos and precise location information to report incidents ranging from routine maintenance needs, suspicious activity and safety threats. A major campus safety issue is also addressed by LiveSafe – users can report sexual harassment or sexual assault incidents directly to Title IX administrators.
“TSU has taken its safety and security to levels unmatched by other colleges and universities in the state of Texas,” LiveSafe CEO Carolyn Parent said. “By providing LiveSafe as a safety and prevention tool, TSU has made a commitment to keeping its students, faculty and staff safe.”
