There are two options for student and employee safe walk.
Campus security is available 24/7 to provide an escort. To request an escort from security:
- Call campus security at 250-828-5033 or local 5033 from any office line.
- Press ‘info’ on any of the indoor or outdoor emergency phones
- Use the TRU SAFE app. Press ‘get help’ and ‘Kamloops Campus Security’
- Remember to give the security officer your exact location (building name, office/classroom number, or entry number) and your desired destination. Wait for your escort inside the building if possible.
TRU SAFE virtual friend walk
The app sends the user’s position to a contact through email or SMS or messaging client on the device. Once the friend accepts the Friend Walk request, the user picks their destination and their friend tracks their location in real time; they keep an eye on them to make sure they make it safely to their destination.
The user has a panic button that alerts their friend of an emergency and also triggers a call to emergency services. If the friend closes the window where they’re monitoring the user, the user is notified and given the option to call emergency services immediately. When the user reaches their destination they end the trip and are no longer tracked by their friend.
