The MGA Knight Alert system will allow us to reach you directly by sending:

Rave Guardian Mobile Safety App

The Middle Georgia State University Police Department are putting campus safety in the hands of the students, faculty, and staff with the mobile Guardian app, by Rave Mobile Safety.

The Rave Guardian Campus Safety App transforms mobile phones on campus into personal safety devices.

RAVE guardian Campus safety app

Guardian enhances safety on campus through a virtual safety network of friends, family, and campus safety and promotes our "If you see something, say something" policy.

Panic Button: Direct immediate connection to campus safety with GPS location and personal profile information.
Tip Texting: Enables anonymous crime tip reporting and 2-way communication via SMS or mobile app
Personal Guardians: Students can identify friends, roommates, and family as ‘Guardians' along with Campus Safety. Students can set a Rave Guardian Timer. During a Timer session Guardians and Campus Safety can check status of student. If the Rave Guardian timer is not deactivated before it expires, campus safety is automatically provided with the user's Rave Guardian profile to proactively identify and check-in on the individual.

Whenever students, faculty, or staff connect with campus safety from their mobile phone, the Rave Guardian Campus Safety App automatically delivers a complete caller profile – including current location, medical conditions, course schedule, addresses, campus ID photo and other critical data.

How Rave Guardian Campus Safety App Works

Rave Guardian is a Campus Safety Mobile App backed by a hosted, Software-as-a-Service platform.

Rave Guardian profile data is stored privately and securely within Rave's redundant and geographically diverse databases. Guardian profile data is provided by the members of your community through Rave's secure web-portal.

User-provided data can be further augmented by loading data from your school's SIS system. With Rave Guardian, your community is always in control –profiles are shared only when a member of your community calls public safety, or allows a previously set Rave Guardian timer to expire.

Search for the "Rave Guardian" in the Apple App Store for iPhones or Google Play Store for Android phones.
