Concordia University Texas recently launched a new app called CTX Safe. It’s a wonderful tool to help ensure your safety on campus. The best part? There’s no need to register or create a password. You simply download it and go!
What Does CTX Safe Do?
CTX Safe helps keep you safe while you’re on campus.
“The role of the police department itself is to make sure students have a safe environment where they can live, learn and grow,” Chief Shane Sexton said. “This app is another piece in a larger safety puzzle.”
How Do I Download the App?
One of the coolest features of the app is Friend Walk. “Friend Walk allows you to take your current location and share it with a friend or family member,” Sexton explained. “They can track your entire walk home and see that everything’s okay.”
Other features include:
- Emergency Contacts
- Mobile BlueLight (sends location and calls campus police immediately)
- Report a Tip
- Virtual Walk Home
- Safety Toolbox
- Campus Maps
- Emergency Plans
- Community Resources
