UNH Police on crime reporting: There's an app for that
The main screen on the LiveSafe app allows users to utilize one of several potential crime- and emergency-prevention tools.
With that in mind, Dean's department has connected with a smartphone app that allows students, parents, faculty, UNH sports fans or anyone else who may be on campus to report directly to one of his dispatchers.
"It's available to you whether you're a full-time student, or if you come onto campus one day a week, one day a year or you're just passing through," he said.
"Students don't like to use the phone these days," he said. "They prefer to text, and this allows them to report a situation with a couple swipes of their fingertips."
"It gives us the information we need that's missing, that we don't necessarily know going in," he said. "Plus, the reality is police can't be everywhere, so to me, this provides everyone the opportunity to get involved in making this campus safe, and I just think it's a good way for students to practice good public safety habits."
