Parents and universities have the same concern: student safety.
CAMPUS SAFETY FOR STUDENTS
Safety and security on campus are paramount concerns for students and parents alike. College students are among the most at-risk group to become victims of crime in the country.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, reports of sex offenses more than tripled between 2001 and 2016. And violent attacks, such as aggravated assaults and robberies, have been trending upwards in recent years, having declined in the period 2001-14.
Of course, universities themselves have safety measures in place, including coordinated alert notification systems when an incident occurs on campus. But individual students may want an added level of security. And that's where Sky Alert comes in, providing 24/7/365 support via our state-of-the-art Monitoring & Response Center. This is not just another 911 app, this is advanced protection for students on campus.
Protecting students with the SOS Fob & Safe Hub App
With Sky Alert in their pocket, students can call for assistance in several ways, triggering an emergency Red Alert or using their device as a virtual buddy.
Whether they choose the Safe Hub Smartphone app or the Sky Alert SOS Fob, they’ll have priority 24/7 access to the emergency services. Parents can be involved as an emergency contact, as part of the escalation process if students raise an alert.
