The LiveSafe app provides students, faculty and staff with a direct connection to campus safety so that everyone can easily communicate all their safety needs. Its easy-to-use features help you stay safe every day and enable us to better protect you.
LiveSafe is a free mobile safety app made available by ECU campus safety and is easy and quick to use! Download the LiveSafe mobile app in iTunes or the Google Play store.
Select "East Carolina University" as the school / agency and fill out your user profile.
The app is available as a free download for all ECU students,
faculty and staff. In addition, ECU parents may download LiveSafe to receive
timely alerts and notifications.
ECU students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use the
LiveSafe app to communicate with ECU Police about any issues, concerns or
questions related to campus safety and security. The app may be used to inquire
about policies and best practices for getting help for a friend, reporting
vandalism, suspicious activity or any other issue related to conduct and
ECU Police can easily re-categorize reports, so users don't need to worry if they mistakenly select the wrong category. If you are unsure which category the report falls into, select "Other".
No. While users are encouraged to provide picture, audio or video evidence when sending in reports, they are only advised to do so if the circumstances are safe.
Users will not be penalized for making claims that turn out to be untrue. So long as reports aren't purposefully and falsely claimed, people are encouraged to share information with police.
Users can send in tip reports using the anonymous feature if they are no comfortable with disclosing their identity. ECU Police will not be able to see who the report is coming from if this is activated.
No. When faced with an emergency situation, LiveSafe recommends and promotes dialing 911. The aim of the LiveSafe app is to provide a new channel to report non-emergency information and crimes to the ECU Police Department.
If in an emergency situation (on- or off-campus), LiveSafe has a 911 distress button. When calling 911 using LiveSafe, ECU Police will receive greater information and intelligence in order to provide assistance faster. ECU Police will receive the caller's GPS coordinates and emergency contact information; ensuring dispatchers respond more efficiently and quickly.
For any emergency that is time-sensitive and poses risk to life and health, 911 should always be called. Otherwise, campus police can be called for other non-emergencies and to provide general information and requests.
So long as users have the capacity to make voice calls, we encourage anyone in an emergency to always call 911. If a user is unable to make a direct call due to situational or technical issues, or if they must be discrete, then users may "Message ECU Police" and start a live two-way chat with ECU Police.
LiveSafe respects the privacy of individuals and law enforcement agencies. Data will only be analyzed in aggregate form once individual information is scrubbed and anonymized. Evidence information belongs solely to the law enforcement agency for which it was designated.
