SafeZone App

Need help with safety or security? Get 24/7 assistance with the SafeZone app.

The SafeZone app gives you direct access to the fastest possible safety assistance regardless of where you are! The SafeZone app is free to all students and staff, and operates across all our campuses and facilities.

Once installed, you can:

  • Report safety concerns 24/7.
  • Get connected quickly with mental health professionals if you are feeling depressed, anxious, or overwhelmed.
  • Activate location sharing with authorities if alone and concerned for safety.
  • Anonymously report incidents via text message, photograph, and location.
  • Control your profile data and what is shared; location is only shared when you raise alerts, check in, send reports, or request assistance.

FAQs

Q: How do I sign-up?
A: After downloading the app, sign in using your UHD username and password

Q: When should I use the Emergency button?
A: Every emergency is different, but here are some examples

  • If you feel threatened, or if someone is threatening or has just threatened you.
  • If you have been assaulted or are the victim of a robbery.
  • If you are hurt or injured (or use First Aid if it's a minor injury).
  • If you see somebody else being threatened, assaulted or robbed.

Q: What if I accidentally press a button?
A: When you tap any of the three SafeZone alert buttons, a "timer" circle is shown winding down (like a clock). If you accidentally press any SafeZone Call button, you can cancel the Call by tapping the button again while the "timer" is winding down. After the Call (Alert) has been sent, you can still cancel your request, but you will still be contacted by Police Dispatch to be sure that you are OK.

Q: Will I be tracked all the time?
A: No, the SafeZone app only shares your location with the UHD Police when you press one of the three alert buttons (Emergency, Medical, Assistance), or Check-In.
Your right to privacy is always respected and you can cancel an alert or a check-in at any time.
