Protests and large gatherings create a sense of community, purpose, and voice. They can also pose safety and security risks to your academic community such as physical injuries, property damage, and other disruptions. COVID-19 has increased the complexity of keeping everyone safe during protests and large gatherings. As we approach July 4th celebrations in the U.S. and protests and large gatherings are anticipated, being prepared is key for keeping your community protected and informed. LiveSafe can help your community overcome the safety and security challenges with protests and large gatherings while respecting people’s right to peacefully protest.

TIPS TO PROTECT YOUR CAMPUS WITH LIVESAFE
- Use geofencing to provide targeted messages to your community based on geography. For example, if a particular part of campus or area within a city is impacted by a protest or large gathering, send a geofenced broadcast message to speak directly to users who are in that area. Note: users must have their location services enabled to receive a geofenced broadcast message.
- Evaluate any existing protest or large gathering protocols and procedures to determine if they can be updated to improve protections for your community. If your organization does not have a plan for how to manage or respond to protests or large gatherings, create a communications and response plan to keep your community safe.
- Remind users of the various ways they can use LiveSafe during a protest or large event to stay safe, like Report Incidents, Report Suspicious Behavior, and two-way chat with Campus Security.
- Incorporate WorkSafe into your organization’s return to school plans. Visit the WorkSafe website or reach out to your Account Manager if you have any questions about how WorkSafe can help your organization get employees and students back to campus or school safely with Health Surveys and Check-Ins, COVID-19 Questions and Resources, and other core LiveSafe features.
