Tulane Takes to Rave Guardian
Tulane students are signing up in droves for a university-sponsored phone application that functions as an emergency panic button. The campus police department rolled out the system, called Rave Guardian, last month. Tulane has worked with a national campus security company, also called Rave Guardian, since last year to develop the program.
If students feel unsafe, they can press a button on their phone and immediately receive a call from the police department. Students can also plug in their starting and final destination, and start a timer. If the student does not deactivate the timer before it goes off, the police department will also call. The system is monitored by the police dispatch center 24 hours-a-day, and will respond to calls anywhere in the New Orleans area.
The police department will also receive the student’s GPS location when either feature is triggered.
Tulane police Superintendent Jon Barnwell said since the app went live Feb. 26, several hundred students have downloaded it.
“People concerned about safety have downloaded,” Barnwell said. “I want people who are less concerned with safety to download it. I want them to have it and not need it, rather than need it and not have it.”
Tulane senior Katie Weaver said she thinks the system enhances campus security.
“If I were in a position where I was about to be raped, or shot and killed, I would absolutely use it,” Weaver said.
