One morning, the university received a threatening message. Local police were notified and a precautionary campus lockdown was instated. The university needed a means of quickly and effectively communicating lockdown procedures and providing community members with the ability to report suspicious activity on campus.

Employees and students were advised to report tips through Vector LiveSafe or to call Security if they had relevant information.
Broadcast messaging and two-way communication capabilities enabled university community members to stay informed and safe throughout this incident. The Vector LiveSafe Mobile Platform significantly improved real-time threat awareness and promoted student and employee preparedness and safety.
