Where Campus Crime Happens
Research has shown that campus crimes do not happen in locations where blue light emergency phones are installed, it happens away from them.
College and university campuses are continually expanding in size, presenting new challenges for campus officials. Until now, traditional methods of emergency reporting have been limited to ten digit phone numbers and blue light emergency phones. Research has shown that crime does not happen in locations where blue light emergency phones are installed, it happens away from them. With limited security resources and evolving campus dynamics, campus police are relying heavily on technology to expand their reach.
Fortunately, there is more pervasive and ubiquitous technology available today allowing students, faculty and staff to summon help from anywhere on campus at any time using a device they already own.
