Rave Guardian App Reminders
RAVE Mobile Technology is the emergency communications platform that UWM uses to send emergency alerts by email, text, social media and website connection. RAVE Guardian is a safety app, through RAVE Mobile Technology, that students, staff and faculty can use to enhance their safety while at UWM.
The RAVE Guardian app, which can be downloaded for free from Apple or Android stores allows users to interact with the police department through texting, confidential tips, location sharing, a call directory and a safety/resource content portal.
The app, which is customized to the university when the user enters their UWM information, also includes a Guardian timer, which allows an app user who is traveling alone to connect with a friend or relative to let them know when they are leaving, where they’re heading, and when they expect to arrive. If the timer isn’t turned off when the user arrives, the friend can contact the user or police.
For more information and details on other features, how the Rave Guardian works and how to download it to your phone, go to the University Police Department website.
There is also a news story from when the app was launched with more details.
