The Safety and Violence Initiative (SaVI) has recently launched a new video to promote the Safe-Up app on campus. Although Safe-Up was officially launched in April 2017, there are still numerous students and staff members who are unaware of its existence. This short video was introduced as a means to increase awareness around campus safety and to provide a detailed explanation of how the Safe-Up app works:
Safe-Up UCT is not a crime-reporting tool, nor is it a panic button. It is an app that complements existing crime and emergency reporting systems at UCT. It is meant to easily coordinate the manner in which students and staff can provide information, feedback and ideas to the university about how to improve safety on and around the various campuses.
