Illinois Central College Announces Mobile App to Enhance Campus Safety
As part of Illinois Central College’s ongoing commitment to the safety of its students and employees, the College is launching “ICC Guardian,” a free, award-winning app designed by Rave Mobile Safety that turns any smartphone into a personal safety device. By downloading the app, users can enhance their personal safety.
ICC Guardian users can choose to create a profile of pertinent personal information that is shared with Campus Police, if the user calls or texts for help in an emergency. They also will have the option of sharing their current location. Additionally, users can easily send anonymous texts to share information or photos, but not their identity, with police.
“The safety and security of our students, faculty and staff is a top priority for ICC,” said Police Chief Tom Larson. “The Rave ICC Guardian app offers everyone on our campuses a free and easy way to be proactive and partner with Campus Police to keep the community safe. We encourage everyone to download the app to take advantage of its safety features and the other resources it offers, such as a direct-dial ICC phone directory and website links.”
The ICC Guardian app is a product of Rave Mobile Safety, the same company that created the MyAlert emergency notification system ICC uses. The app is available for Apple and Android mobile devices by searching for “Rave Guardian” in the app stores.
