RICHMOND, Vt.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Campus Sentinel, Inc., a company that specializes in the development of mobile applications for higher education safety and security, launched CAMPUS SENTINEL, a free mobile application for the iOS platform (iPhone, iPad, and iPod) that provides students and parents with campus crime statistics for more than 4,400 universities and colleges throughout the United States; important safety resources on topics relevant to students and their families; breaking campus-based security and safety news; and access to dozens of free resources from leading not-for-profit organizations. It was announced today by Dr. Gary J. Margolis, President & Co-Founder of Campus Sentinel, Inc.
“We are excited to launch this new app to provide families with important safety resources and crime statistics as they select a College or University,” said Dr. Margolis. “Parents and students can feel confident that they have done their extensive research, and armed with campus safety knowledge they can focus on their higher education as they head off to campus in the fall.”
Campus Sentinel gives users the ability to compare institutions by self-reported crime stats across years and locations, and view resources on topics that include travel abroad safety; mental health needs; questions to explore on campus visits; off-campus housing; gender and sexual violence; crime prevention; protecting your online reputation, and more.
