STATESBORO, GA (WTOC) -

One new item on the campus of Georgia Southern University could help students stay safe.

University Police unveiled a new phone app, called LiveSafe, which students and others on campus can download.  It gives them routes to find buildings, but it also identifies every emergency call box in the parking lots around campus.

It also gives them a direct line to either 911 or university police to deliver anonymous tips in a number of ways.

“Many students today don't want to talk to someone on the phone, they'd rather be able to leave a text, a voice mail, or a video clip. They can do that with this app,” said University Police Chief Laura McCullough.

The app is free and available through your app store.

One other feature, it shows the location for AED's incase of a medical emergency.
