Cleveland State University has beta tested and today launched a new cutting-edge smartphone app that can identify a user's location and send police help with the single touch of a button.  CSU is the first campus in the nation to implement the new system, developed by 911Cellular  of Beachwood, Ohio.
"As one of the safest universities in Ohio, we regularly look to stay ahead of emerging new technologies, and this is a big step forward," said Stephanie McHenry, vice president of Business Affairs & Finance at CSU.  "This provides us with an added layer of security for our students, faculty and staff."      
The app at CSU, which has been branded Viking Shield, is integrated into the campus police computer system. When an alert is signaled, the user's phone automatically transmits its location to campus police, allowing dispatchers to send help immediately.
