Frequently Asked Questions
What kinds of information should I report?
GGC students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use the LiveSafe app to communicate with Campus Police about any issues, concerns or questions related to campus safety and security. The app may be used to inquire about policies and best practices for getting help for a friend, reporting vandalism, any other issue related to conduct and well-being.
Who receives my reports and information?
Information submitted is monitored 24-7 by Campus Police. In case Campus Police requires further information on any report, they will follow-up and live chat with you.
What happens if I send a report in the wrong category?
Campus Police can easily re-categorize reports, so don't worry if you mistakenly select the wrong category. If you're unsure which category the report falls into, select "Other."
Do I have to provide picture or audio evidence?
No. While users are encouraged to provide picture, audio or video evidence when sending in reports, you're only advised to do so if the circumstances are safe.
What if a report I send in turns out to be a mistake?
Users will not be penalized for making claims that turn out to be untrue. So long as reports aren't purposefully and falsely claimed, people are encouraged to share information with police.
How does the anonymous feature work?
Use the anonymous tip feature if you're not comfortable disclosing your identity. Campus Police are unable to see who the report is coming from if this feature is activated.
Does LiveSafe replace 911?
No. When faced with an emergency situation, LiveSafe recommends and promotes dialing 911. The aim of the LiveSafe app is to provide a new channel to report non-emergency information and crimes to Campus Police.
If in an emergency situation (on or off campus), LiveSafe has a 911 distress button. When calling 911 using LiveSafe, the local 911 Center will receive the caller's GPS coordinates and emergency contact information, ensuring dispatchers respond more efficiently and quickly.
When should I call Campus Police over 911?
For any emergency that is time-sensitive and poses risk to life and health (especially fire and medical emergencies), 911 should always be called. Otherwise, Campus Police should can be called for crimes and criminal activity.
How could I use LiveSafe in an emergency?
So long as you have the capacity to make voice calls, we encourage anyone in an emergency to always call 911. If, however, you're unable to make a direct call due to situational or technical issues, or must be discrete, then you may “Message Police” and start a live two-way chat with Campus Police. Please also keep your text messages short and concise.
What will you do with my data?
LiveSafe respects the privacy of individuals and law enforcement agencies. Data will only be analyzed in aggregate form once individual information is scrubbed and made anonymous. Evidence information belongs solely to the law enforcement agency for which it was designated.
