Please Note: Albany State University Police Department will no longer utilize the Blue Light Emergency Phones. While Blue Light Emergency Phones have traditionally been a prominent feature on the Albany State University Campuses, advancements in mobile technology and the widespread use of cell phones have made it easier for the campus community to report emergencies quickly and efficiently from wherever they are on campus. The Albany State University Police Department recommends the LiveSafe App. LiveSafe is a free downloadable app that the campus community can use to initiate contact with emergency responders on campus.

Features include:

  • Report Tips: The "Report Tips" feature allows you to send text, picture, video, and audio directly to Albany State University Police in real-time, and anonymously if you prefer. You can share information about any safety incidents or concerns, such as suspicious activity, theft, harassment, and more. You can also engage in a live chat with a safety official.

  • Emergency Options: By calling 911, or calling/messaging Albany State University Police from the "Emergency Options" screen, you will initiate location tracking, allowing safety officials to see where you are and respond to you more quickly in an emergency situation. You can easily stop location tracking at any time after the call is placed.

  • SafeWalk: Get from place to place safely by using SafeWalk to invite your contacts to "virtually escort" you, allowing them to follow your location on a map as they chat with you. You can request to virtually escort others as well.

  • Receive Alerts: Stay up to date by receiving important safety notifications and emergency alerts from Albany State University Police.

  • Resources: Access important safety information such as emergency procedures, health & wellness resources, sexual assault assistance resources, and more.

  • Complete your profile: To gain the maximum benefit of the LiveSafe app, make sure to complete your user profile with your mobile phone number. This will help Albany State University Police better respond to reports you send in.

  • Enable Push Notifications: Allow "Push Notifications" to be enabled in your Settings. Albany State University Police will send important alerts through SMS, email, and push notifications. You will not be spammed.

  • Enable Location Services: Be sure to enable location services. Safety officials rely on GPS data to better serve and protect you. When you report an incident or make an emergency call through the app, Albany State University Police will see your location so they can respond quickly. Don't worry! You are not being actively tracked, and can stop location tracking (when used during emergencies) any time you want.
