Putting Security Cameras literally into the palms of students.

The University has invested in EmergenSee a Free app that allows students to show campus police what’s going on around them, in real-time.  The alert will pull up the students name, cell phone number, GPS location and a live stream video if they are within the CEO Fence Boarders.
