Call police using one button

The app has a number of features, including a one-button speed dial to reach the JCCC Police Department in an emergency. You can also text JCCC Police to report non-emergency situations where assistance is needed, such as needing to report a minor accident with no injuries or ask for a police escort to your vehicle.

Share your safety status with loved ones

The Guardian app also includes a Safety Timer that alerts your pre-selected friends and family, called Guardians, if you fail to turn off the timer before the time expires. Use this feature both on and off campus to let loved ones know of your safety status in just a few keystrokes.

Unless you activate the safety timer or call or text the campus police, the Guardian app does NOT track your location. The application transmits your location only when you activate these features A visible indication on your phone clearly shows when your location is being transmitted.

Give emergency responders medical information

Your Guardian profile information is shared with emergency responders, giving them access to important information even if you can’t tell them yourself. By filling out Guardian's profile you're already being proactive about your well-being, by being able to easily share emergency contact, vehicle, and disability and medical information with first responders.
