University Police: Rave Guardian Security App

Rave Guardian is one of the best ways to not only improve your personal safety but also that of your fellow guardians within your own private safety network. This application provides rapid and proactive communications with friends, family, co-workers, your college or university, and even participation in a 911 call center in the event of an emergency.  

App Features 

Set a Safety Timer- Notify people you trust to check in with you if you are alone or in an unfamiliar place.
Manage & Message Your Guardians- Invite family, friends, or others to be your Guardian, and communicate with them within the app as needed.
Easy Emergency Communication- Call safety officials directly for help if you are in trouble and send texttips-including photos-if you see something suspicious.

Free Download - Easy to Set Up

The Pirate Guardian is available for iPhones and Android smartphones. Use the links on this page or search for “RAVE GUARDIAN” in the app store.  
(Rave Guardian is the generic name of the app. After the app is installed and you are identified as a member of the Armstrong Community, the app is identified as “Pirate Guardian”.)

The App will guide you through the process of registering as an Armstrong User, inviting others to be your guardians, enabling notifications in the phone’s settings, setting a user PIN code, and entering safety profile information.
