All the resources of Columbia University Public Safety are conveniently available through Lion Safe, a user-friendly app available for your smartphone or tablet. Public Safety’s Lion Safe app allows the user to request emergency services at the touch of a button along with other useful quick links including maps, shuttle schedules, crime alerts, emergency protocols, campus safety notifications, and non-emergency numbers for each campus. A new feature available on the app is Friend Walk, a way to alert a friend of your location in real-time so they can follow your path to your destination and trigger a call to emergency services if necessary.
The Public Safety app is available for iOS and Android devices. It can be downloaded for free from the App Store or through Google Play by searching “Lion Safe Columbia University”. The app is accessible to everyone and does not require University login to download.
