ROCK HILL, SOUTH CAROLINA — Winthrop University’s Campus Police department has launched a new mobile safety app that will ensure faster emergency response in distress situations.

“LiveSafe” is an additional component to campus police’s multi-faceted approach to campus safety. The new app will improve communication among students, staff, faculty and campus police, Chief Frank Zebedis said in a campus-wide e-mail.

“By having access to the latest safety information, our goal is to help continue building a safe campus together,” he said.

The new app will allow people to:
• Report anonymous tips to campus police
• Receive real-time safety alerts from campus police to their phone
• Let friends and family monitor them as they walk to their residence halls, vehicles or other areas on campus
• Review information such as parking enforcement, important numbers, the Clery Act and emergency management protocols

“LiveSafe” is free and available for download today on Apple and Android smartphones. To download, visit the iTunes or Google Play store and click on the “LiveSafe” (blue shield) icon. Select Winthrop from the list of schools that appears and fill in your name and contact information.

"LiveSafe" replaces the former app in use, "WU Watch." The company that distributed WU Watch merged with the company that produces "LiveSafe."
