There is now a free personal safety app for your smartphone available to students, faculty, and staff. The app is called "LiveSafe" offered by LiveSave Inc. The application can be downloaded for free from the app store feature on your smartphone.
Please keep in mind that there are other personal safety applications available to you besides this one. The LiveSafe app is free to you when you enter your @uga.edu email address.
Please keep in mind that the LiveSafe app does not belong to nor is it operated by the University of Georgia Police Department. Whether you choose the LiveSafe app, another personal safety app, or no app, we encourage you to be familiar with the fastest way to use your phone to dial 911 in an emergency. Most phones have the ability to make emergency calls from the lock screen with one button. Be sure you know how to quickly access 911 on your phone in the event of an emergency.
As always, we encourage folks to be aware of their surroundings, and when you see anything suspicious, please call us. We are available 24/7/365 to help you if you see anything suspicious or are in need of assistance.
