NVCC students, faculty and staff are encouraged to use the LiveSafe app to communicate with NVCC police about any issues, concerns or questions related to campus safety and security. The app may be used to inquire about policies and best practices for getting help for a friend, reporting vandalism, suspicious activity or any other issue related to conduct and well-being.

NVCC police can easily re-categorize reports, so users don't need to worry if they mistakenly select the wrong category. If you are unsure which category the report falls into, select "Other".

No. While users are encouraged to provide picture, audio, or video evidence when sending in reports, they are only advised to do so if the circumstances are safe.

Users will not be penalized for making claims that turn out to be untrue. So long as reports aren't purposefully and falsely claimed, people are encouraged to share information with police.

Users can send in tip reports using the anonymous feature if they are not comfortable with disclosing their identity. NVCC police will not be able to see who the report is coming from if this is activated.

No. When faced with an emergency situation, LiveSafe recommends and promotes dialing 911. The aim of the LiveSafe app is to provide a new channel to report non-emergency information and crimes to the NVCC Police Department.

If you are in an emergency situation (on- or off-campus), you can use LiveSafe's 911 distress button. When calling 911 using LiveSafe, NVCC police will receive greater information and intelligence in order to provide assistance faster. NVCC police will receive the caller's GPS coordinates and emergency contact information; ensuring dispatchers respond more efficiently and quickly.

For any emergency that is time-sensitive and poses risk to life and health, 911 should always be called. Otherwise, campus police can be called for other non-emergencies and to provide general information and requests.

So long as users have the capacity to make voice calls, we encourage anyone in an emergency to always call 911. If a user is unable to make a direct call due to situational or technical issues, or if they must be discrete, then users may "Message NVCC police" and start a live two-way chat with NVCC police.

LiveSafe respects the privacy of individuals and law enforcement agencies. Data will only be analyzed in aggregate form once individual information is scrubbed and anonymized. Evidence information belongs solely to the law enforcement agency for which it was designated.

Information submitted is monitored 24/7 by the NVCC police. In case campus safety requires further information on any report, the police will follow-up and live chat with the user.
