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.

“We have implemented a new safety feature in the LiveSafe app which is available at no cost to anyone with a smart phone,†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.

So students can text "bout 2b raped" and then video it? WTH? Where do people even come up with stupid ideas like this while opposing HB 859 and HB 826?

What!?! The allowance, gracious as it was from our overlords, to carry Tasers hasn't stopped all crime on every campus in the system! I'm shocked, shocked I tell you!

Reminds me of:


Fast Forward to 1:30 for the part where the campus welcome person hands the newly-arriving freshman her "official B.U. rape whistle" and reminds her "don't blow it unless it's actually happening."

A new law was passed that allows students and employees 18 and older to carry stun guns and tasers on Georgia public college campuses
According to Laura McCullough, campus Chief of Police, Georgia Southern University experiences few situations where a stun gun is needed for self-defense.

"Georgia Southern has a very low crime rate. Most of the crime we see on campus is theft of property, which is usually left unattended by the owner. There are very few crimes against persons on our campus, where a weapon, such as a stun gun, is needed for protection," McCullough said.

Tech has to give away t-shirts just so students will download the app.
