University Police Department
UPD purchased a mobile phone safety app called RAVE Guardian. The app can be downloaded to any Smart Phone (Android or IOS) platform. The app is free, and is an opt-in system, as opposed to the Alert SJSU emergency notification system which is opt-out.
RAVE Guardian is a supplement to the emergency notification system and can be used by all San Jose State students, their family members, as well as SJSU faculty, staff and administrators. Students can network with friends and increase overall safety and security of the entire student body.
Rave Mobile Safety works with over 1000 campuses across the United States and is widely used by the student population. The app allows users to set safety timers, send tips and multi-media messaging, use the 'One Touch Call Button' for emergency help (which provides GPS location) and create a 'Safety Profile' for faster emergency response.
RAVE Guardian is available in the app store. We are in a Beta Test phase, but people are encouraged to download it now. Once the app is downloaded, it will be personalized as Spartan Safeguard. Please contact Captain Alan Cavallo, (408) 924-6551 if you have any questions.
