Panic Button Continued When the countdown reaches 0, the panic button performs two functions: – Sends your location and profile information to CSU police. – Connects you via phone to CSU police. Your location updates every 20 seconds unless cleared by the police or you deactivate the panic button.
Safety Checks Set a safety check when youre walking alone and want additional safety. Simply select an end time, if you dont enter your secure PIN before that time expires, your emergency contacts are sent a text message. Set safety checks while: » Walking to and from class/the library » Walking to your car » On a date » Attending social functions » Traveling
Safety Checks Continued Choosing your emergency contacts: » You are able to add up to three emergency contacts, select family or close friends who have a CELL PHONE and are dependable (remember, if you miss a check these people are sent a text message). *Its always safer to walk in a group. But if you must walk alone, safety checks are an additional tool at your disposal.*
