Parents and universities both have the same concern: the safety and security of the student and for good reason. College students are one of the highest at-risk groups of crime in the country.
An annual study by the National Center for Education Statistics found that reports of forcible sex offenses on campus more than tripled from 2001 to 2015. This shows how truly important student safety prevention tactics can be, especially when in life or death situations.
Universities have many systems in place such as coordinated alert notifications when there is campus danger. In conjunction with the universities’ vigilance, Sky Alert's SOS Fob and Safe Hub App are another layer of protection that can save lives in all type of emergencies.
