ASU LiveSafe mobile app functionality and benefits

Send ASU Police real-time, anonymous tips, including audio, pictures, text and video. 

App best practices

  1. Complete the profile with your mobile telephone number, which can help ASU Police better respond to reports.
  2. Enable Push Notifications in the settings on your phone.
  3. Turn on Location Services. Set location services to “Always.” GPS data may provide ASU Police a better way to serve and protect you. When you report an incident or make a call, ASU Police will know precisely where you are so they can respond. Location services also target you for geofenced Advisory messages.

  • Alert personal emergency contacts in times of distress.


  • Activate SafeWalk and text with your friends or family during your trip as they view your progress on a map. Deactivate SafeWalk after your trip.
