Students and employees can share information - anonymously, if they choose to - through text, photo or video directly from their smart phones. Additionally, app users can receive important broadcast notifications sent by the Elon University Police Department. With a built-in SafeWalk feature, students also will be able to invite others to “virtually escort” them by monitoring their location on a map.
