Unique Partnership with Subscriber Colleges and Universities

Campus Guardian changes the face of Campus security by placing emergency management tools in the hands of everyone involved: the caller, the Public Safety dispatcher and the local first responders. When a school elects to install Campus Guardian, it provides its students and staff with an immediate link to the school's Public Safety organization via their cell phone, and provides its Public Safety organization with the latest technology to detect and effectively respond to emergencies.

Officers patrolling the campus are notified electronically when Campus Guardian reports an emergency. The caller's location and the locations of all available officers are displayed on a high resolution image of the campus in the dispatcher's office and a location description is sent directly to the responding officers' phones. Locations are updated several times a minute to help direct officers to the caller, even if the caller is moving.

Campus Public Safety and Campus Guardian work together to deploy a system that provides information to Public Safety officers in a way that expedites their response to any emergency. Maps are labeled to describe areas in a way that is clearly understood by the officers. Officers receive additional training, and practice with the system to ensure that they are able to maximize its potential. The school provides officers with GPS-enabled cell phones to support locating them and guiding them to the caller. Data collected by the system enables Public Safety to review and continuously improve procedures.

Management Team
Campus Guardian was founded by individuals with extensive experience in law enforcement, security and communications. They understand that response time is often the most critical factor in an emergency and developed Campus Guardian to reduce or eliminate sources of delayed responses.

Campus Guardian currently runs on many popular GPS-enabled phones on the AT&T, Sprint and Verizon Wireless networks, including Blackberry and other SmartPhones, with more coming every day. See current list.

Consider the alternatives:

Blue light systems
: Persons in need must locate the closest blue light and stay at this location in order for Public Safety to locate them.

Direct 911 calls: Public Safety is often not notified when a 911 call occurs. 911 must relay the information to first responders, who must travel to the campus and find the caller, often based on verbal information only. Without an intimate knowledge of the campus, locating a caller, even with full knowledge of the location delays arrival.

Time-based alarm: Student or faculty member sets a timer on their cell phone and Public Safety is not notified until the time has elapsed, which can be many minutes later.
