Military bases are often thought of as safe places because of who lives and works in them. The 11th Security Forces Squadron in Joint Base Andrews in Maryland have decided to take it a step further by adding LiveSafe as an easier, more efficient way to prevent possible incidents.
“LiveSafe can present police with more visual information in real time than a phone call,” said Staff Sgt. Kraig Wright, 11 SFS law enforcement administrator. “Geotagging the site of the tip can improve the response times of responders by having an exact location.”
The JB Andrews’ LiveSafe platform will also include law enforcement contact numbers, 99 and the line straight to the 11 SFS dispatch desk, and SafeWalk, which allows families to track their children and loved ones.
“With LiveSafe’s anonymous reporting and texting features, it provides concerned members of JB Andrews with a more informal medium to report their safety and security concerns to Security Forces without having to make an intimidating Emergency 911 phone call,” said Lt. Col. Grant Hargrove, 11 SFS commander.
LiveSafe will help the 11th SFS gain a better understanding of their community’s concerns, and in effect, will be able to more efficiently focus their law enforcement resources to address and prevent those problems.
