Lehigh University Increases Campus Security

Lehigh University is offering members of the campus community the EmergenSee personal security system.

“By just pressing the red EmergenSee button on their smart phone, any student, faculty or staff member will be connected directly to our dispatcher to alert the LUPD of the situation and communicate directly via text,” he said.

“The app can also capture video and audio information, as well as the user’s exact location. It can be used anywhere on campus and within a GeoFence perimeter that includes many of the surrounding neighborhoods where our students live.”

“As a former student and the parent of a recent Lehigh graduate,” said Clayton, “I know that a healthy and safe campus environment is fundamental to ensuring that each of us can continue to thrive here at Lehigh.We recognize the value of being prepared in the event of emergency circumstances.”
