Here are the recent alerts: http://bf.georgiasouthern.edu/publicsafety/news/In last couple of weeks, Georgia Southern University has experienced numerous on and off campus incidents that have prompted concerns about public safety. As the University System of Georgia plans to add a total of 51 campus police officers this year, according to myajc.com, some faculty, staff and students might be wondering what GS is doing to address the concerns.
Though it is unknown if any of the 51 police officers will make their way to Georgia Southern University, Laura McCullough, Georgia Southern Police Chief, is dedicated to keeping students and faculty safe on the GS campus.
â€œWe have implemented a new safety feature in the LiveSafe app which is available at no cost to anyone with a smart phone,â€ McCullough said.
The LiveSafe app makes it easier for users to be connected with emergency departments, whether that is the university police department or a 911 dispatcher.
The app also has features such as text messaging, video and picture messaging and voice messaging.
Other than this app, the campus police department has not implemented any new safety procedures for the new school year.
