TapShield Safety App

TapShield is a safety app that encourages information-sharing between the Cal Poly Community and University Police to build safer communities. Think of TapShield as a social safety network for the campus community and wherever they want to go. UPD and ASI partnered to bring this free personal safety mobile app to the campus community.
