Have you ever found yourself needing a police escort to your car or room at night but didn’t know the phone number, or maybe you just want to know if your favorite parking lot is full? There is now an app for that. Tarleton State University has launched a new app, Tarleton eduSafe, available now for both Apple and Android phones and tablets. Tarleton eduSafe features access to emergency procedures, a signup for the Tarleton Code Purple text messaging service, police escort requests and parking maps for the Stephenville campus. You now can also access essential emergency procedures at any time, even without a WiFi or data connection. From a suspicious person to natural disasters, Tarleton eduSafe is designed to help students, faculty and staff handle any situation. With the new app, procedures and information are now accessible on mobile devices. Tarleton eduSafe also provides a form allowing users to report any hazardous conditions directly to the university’s Risk Management & Compliance office staff. This form may be submitted anonymously, if desired.

The app was developed by the Texas A&M Health Science Center and adapted for all Texas A&M University System schools; the app is managed by and allows communication directly with Tarleton’s Office of Risk Management & Compliance.

Other features include: getting rapid access to Tarleton’s mission-critical safety and security staff with one-touch dialing, access to Emergency procedures in the event an emergency happens, reporting of safety hazards by including a picture and description. Users can choose to include their contact information for Risk Management & Compliance staff to follow-up with those making a report and access the most updated versions of the Clery Act reports for any Tarleton campus.
