The University of Hawaii has launched a new mobile app aimed at keeping students safer on campus. The app is being called "The Manoa Guardian" and allows students to set a timer that notifies a designated contact person or campus security if the user doesn’t check in, or cancel the timer. Students can also report incidents on campus, alerting security to the time and location of the witness by allowing campus security to respond using the senders GPS location. Sarah Rice is the Community Programs Manager for the Department of Public Safety for the University of Hawaii at Manoa.
The Rave app is available from iPhone and Android markets to anyone. However the Manoa Guardian features are only available to those who have an email registered through the UH System.
