Rave Guardian is a free and optional personal safety service that is available to TCC students, faculty and staff with a valid TCC email account.
Safety in the Palm of Your Hands
Safety is a top priority. That's why TCC is taking a proactive approach to safeguarding individuals on campus with the availability of Rave Guardian. This mobile app provides an opportunity to support users who are in need of immediate assistance by enhancing safety on TCC's campuses through real-time interactive features that create a virtual safety network of friends, family, and the TCC Police Department.
How It Works
Rave Guardian allows you to rapidly provide information about yourself to the TCC Police Department during an emergency. By building a personal profile, information about you can be immediately accessed by TCC Police dispatchers should you call from a registered mobile phone. Rave Guardian can also provide police with GPS coordinates from your phone (if available), which can decrease response time and allow first responders to locate you should you not be able to give them your location.
Rave Guardian APP Features
- Panic Button – Direct, immediate connection to the TCC Police Department with GPS location and personal profile information.
- Tip Texting - Enables anonymous, 2-way, crime tip reporting through text and images.
- Personal Guardians & Safety Timer - Users can identify TCC Police, friends, roommates, and family as "Guardians" when setting their Rave Guardian Safety Timer. During a timer session, Guardians and TCC Police can check the status of the user. If the Safety Timer is not deactivated before it expires, TCC Police is automatically provided with the user's Rave Guardian profile to proactively identify and check in on the individual.
- Safety Profile - User-created Safety Profiles contain information such as residence details and medical conditions. When an individual requires assistance - on or off campus - user Safety Profiles are displayed to TCC Police and Smart911 enabled 9-1-1 centers nationwide.
