LiveSafe Frequently Asked Questions
Select your college as the School / Agency and fill out your user profile.
LiveSafe provides the ability to easily contact Campus Safety or Claremont Police to report concerns about your own safety, suspicious activity or a crime. It’s the blue light safety phone at your fingertips. Features also include a location sharing option so friends can track your travel between points to ensure your safe arrival.
The app is available as a free download for all Claremont Colleges students, faculty and staff. In addition, parents may download LiveSafe to receive timely alerts and notifications.
You can report any issues, concerns or questions related to safety and security. This includes suspicious activity, potentially dangerous situations, crime, accidents, assaults or repairs related needed to improve safety.
Information submitted is monitored 24-7 by the Campus Safety. If they require further information on any report, Campus Safety will follow-up with a text or request to live chat with the user.
Unless a user requests anonymity or changes the app's default setting, yes, Campus Safety will be able to track your location when using the app
Campus Safety can easily re-categorize reports, so users don't need to worry if they select the wrong category. If you are unsure which category the report falls into, select "Other."
No. While users are encouraged to provide a picture, audio or video evidence when sending reports, they should only do so if the circumstances are safe.
Users will not be penalized for making claims that turn out to be untrue. So long as reports aren't purposefully and falsely made, people are encouraged to share information with Campus Safety.
Users can send in tip reports using the anonymous feature if they are not comfortable with disclosing their identity. Campus Safety will not be able to see who the report is coming from if the anonymous report box is selected.
No! When faced with an emergency situation, LiveSafe recommends users dial 911. The aim of the LiveSafe app is to provide a new channel to reportnon-emergency information and crimes to Campus Safety.
If you are in an emergency situation (on or off campus), LiveSafe has a 911 distress button. When calling 911 using LiveSafe, Campus Safety will receive greater information and intelligence in order to provide assistance faster. Campus Safety will receive the caller's GPS coordinates and emergency contact information; ensuring dispatchers respond more efficiently and quickly.
For any emergency that is time-sensitive and poses a risk to life and health, 911 should always be called. Otherwise, Campus Safety should be called for non-emergencies and to provide general information and requests.
So long as users have the capacity to make voice calls, we encourage anyone in an emergency to always call 911. If, however, a user is unable to make a direct call due to situational or technical issues, or if they must be discrete, then users may “Message Campus Safety” and start a live two-way chat with a Campus Safety dispatcher.
LiveSafe respects the privacy of individuals and law enforcement agencies. Evidence information belongs solely to the law enforcement agency for which it was designated.
