Panic Call Mode
With this feature, users can program the Guardian phone number into a designated speed
dial, allowing a one touch call that will automatically notify University Police.
If the user's phone utilizes smart technology and has GPS capability, the panic call
will also indicate the caller's location on campus, thereby facilitating a faster
response by police or other emergency responders. Basic information including a photograph
and personal description will also appear, alerting University Police as to the identity
of the person in need. The user will also have the option to add additional information
to the database including their vehicle information, allergies, or other special considerations
emergency responders should be aware of when responding.
Safety Timer Mode
With this feature users can set a time that coincides with the time they expect to
travel from one location on campus to another. If the caller arrives safely and deactivates
their timer, the University Police Department will never receive notification that
a timer was ever set. If the user does not deactivate their timer they will receive
a notification from the app three minutes prior to its expiration. If the user does
not reach their destination, or is otherwise detained, the timer will automatically
trigger a panic call to University Police who will then be able to respond to their
location. Users also have the option calling University Police directly from the app
during or after the timer is set.
The features of the Guardian system will significantly enhance the safety of all students,
faculty and staff on campus. Although we strongly recommend enrolling in the SB Guardian
system, its use and enrollment are strictly voluntary.
