MSU, LiveSafe partner to enhance campus safety


Staff Report



MOREHEAD – Morehead State University’s Student Government Association and University Police Department (MSUPD) have worked together to increase campus safety by launching LiveSafe, the leading mobile app being used by forward-thinking schools across the country.

MSU adopted the solution to allow students, faculty, staff, and community members to directly and seamlessly contact campus safety officials for a broad range of safety issues.

The LiveSafe campus safety app enables a two-way communication system between students and campus officials. Students can share information about anything from suspicious activity and mental health concerns to sexual assault and violence – through text, photo or video directly from their smart phones – and anonymously if they choose. Safety officials can respond to these actionable and monitor real-time information from a Command Dashboard to help ensure a safe environment for all members of the community.

With SafeWalk, students invite others to “virtually escort” them by monitoring their location on a real-time map. SafeWalkers can simultaneously chat with one another to maintain constant contact. Additionally, app users can receive important broadcast notifications sent by MSUPD.

“LiveSafe is a powerful communication tool that will help us create a closer, more connected community. Students are deeply connected to their smartphones, so providing them with a modern solution to share safety information made sense for our campus,” said Austin Casebolt, SGA president.

“LiveSafe is committed to making the world a safer place and we’re proud to partner with prestigious institutions like Morehead State University,” said Shy Pahlevani, LiveSafe founder. “Technology is breaking down barriers for students to take more control of their campuses, to more effectively look out for one another, and to create a safer environment that ensures students get most out of their college experience.”

LiveSafe is available to the Morehead community to download for free on iPhone and Android devices.
