Kennesaw State University unveiled its new app Monday, Oct. 12, LiveSafe, available free for download on all

iPhone and Android devices for students, faculty, staff and campus visitors.

The user-friendly app, developed by a survivor of the Virginia Tech shooting tragedy and purchased by KSU, puts
safety at students’ fingertips, making it easy for users to communicate directly – and anonymously, if they choose – with KSU police dispatch via text, picture, phone call, audio or video recording. 

LiveSafe’s easy-to-navigate interface allows users to quickly and discreetly issue reports or tips on a variety of concerns, including car accidents, noise disturbances, suspicious activity, theft, sexual assault and violence, all with just a few taps on their smartphones. The alerts are immediately sent to the Department of Public Safety’s Communication Center, where users can communicate in real time with campus officers and dispatchers.
