Active members of the Cal Poly community can download the free Rave Guardian safety app and turn their smartphone into a personal safety device. Rave Guardian offers Cal Poly users a single safety app that can send anonymous tips, set a safety timer for self-guided on-campus safety walks, text Mustang Patrol directly for safety walks, connect to 24-hour police or support services, and easy emergency communication directly with Cal Poly Police Department (CPPD).
You can connect friends and family contacts as “Social Guardians” and request one or more of them to virtually walk with you on or off campus. It's like having an emergency blue light system and a trusted friend with you at all times.
