Instant notifications effectively protect students 24 hours a day by delivering safety-related messages wherever students are located
Omnilert LLC, makers of the e2Campus notification system, today announced that the national non-profit campus safety organization, Security On Campus, Inc., has endorsed notification technologies like e2Campus to better protect college students from crimes. Instant notifications effectively protect students by delivering safety-related messages wherever students are located, 24 hours a day. Research shows many students now carry cell phones and other mobile devices with them wherever they go. Catherine Bath, Executive Director of Security On Campus, is scheduled to be interviewed live on CBS’s The Early Show this Friday, February 10th at a little past 8:00AM ET. During the interview, Catherine will be discussing the newest technologies like e2Campus to help keep students safe.
“e2Campus is a practical way to protect students on or off campus by issuing a Clery Act Timely Warning,” explains Catherine Bath. “It is the most effective way to reach a broad base of students when a crime occurs that can involve additional victims. The Clery Act is more than just a requirement to report crimes. It is intended to help protect students everyday by raising the awareness of crimes committed on campus.”
e2Campus works by enabling college administrators and public safety officers to send an instant alert to all students cell phones and email addresses the minute an event occurs. Since the notifications are sent to students cell phones using Short Message Service (SMS) text messages, the alert reaches students wherever they are located on campus or off campus. For instance, if a student is walking across campus at night and learns that a crime was recently committed and the criminal is at large, then that student can take immediate actions to protect his/her safety.
