The RebelSAFE App

UNLV’s free safety app, available for Apple and Android devices. Among the many features helping keep the campus community safe, users can:

  • Call for a late night security escort.
  • Report a tip. This non-emergency feature allows users to submit a crime tip for further review by Police Investigations
  • Text-chat with dispatch.
  • Enable Friend Walk. Users can send their GPS location to a friend through the app and have their movements tracked in real time if they’re walking alone.
  • Call 9-1-1. Call directly from the app with the push of a button. Connecting in this way can save time in an emergency.
