Chief Rodgers Launches a New App for Campus Safety

OKCU Police Chief Jennifer Rodgers has launched Rave Guardian, a free mobile app that turns any smartphone into a personal safety device for students, staff and faculty.

Not only is the Guardian app user friendly, it provides peace of mind to anyone who uses it. - Levi Harrel

"I recommend all students, faculty, and staff download this app and utilize it to its fullest ability!" -Levi Harrel, Associate Director of Student Development

Users can create a profile of information about themselves and invite family and friends to their safety network. When needed, the user can request one or more of their guardians to virtually walk with them on or off campus.

“The safety of our students, staff and faculty is our top priority at Oklahoma City University. The Rave Guardian app allows each one of our campus members to be proactive about their safety and help keep themselves, as well as their friends safer. We encourage everyone to download and register with the Rave Guardian app.” – Jennifer Rodgers

How does the Rave Guardian App work?

Register and Set up an Account

Users can add their name, campus address, medical notes and other pertinent information for campus safety in case of an emergency.

Easy Emergency Communication

In an emergency, a one-button call to campus safety officials will display the user’s Guardian profile and current location.

Add & Message Guardians

By adding roommates, friends and family to their network, users can feel safer when walking alone, on or off campus. Guardians can also be messaged directly through the app.

Set a Safety Timer

In the event a student feels unsafe, they can set a timer with their current location, indicating where they are going and when they should arrive. In the event they do not make it there and de-activate the timer, guardians or campus safety will be immediately alerted.

Send Anonymous Tips

See something, say something. The app allows users to anonymously text suspicious activity to campus police, including photos.

The Rave Guardian App can be downloaded in the Apple or Google Play stores by searching for “Rave Guardian.” You can also learn more at www.raveguardian.com.

“This app makes my family and I feel much safer. I come back from the theatre during tech and show weeks close to 2am and I’m able to have them directly by my side. There is also a 911 button on the home page to easily contact the police department." - Monica Brown, student

Overall, this app will help with campus safety and peace of mind for students. We’re all on our phones anyways so why not have another app that makes us feel safe as we’re walking around campus. - Monica Brown, student
