Campus Safety Mobile Apps

National Center for Campus Public Safety (NCCPS), 2016

In recent years, we have seen a rise in the creation of mobile apps designed for safety and security. In combination with the technical abilities of smartphones, the creation and demand for safety apps is growing out of security concerns across the nation in the wake of campus shootings and other safety incidents. According to the Pearson Student Mobile Device Survey 2015, conducted by Harris Poll, eight in ten (86%) college students regularly use a smartphone, up slightly from 83% in 2014. Many colleges and universities are deciding to implement safety and security apps on their campuses for students, and in some cases for faculty and staff as well. This comprehensive list of mobile safety app resources with summaries, cost information, supporting devices, and links may assist individuals and institutions considering the use of mobile safety app technology.
