In response to recent discussions at the University of Delaware about
crime reporting and safety, several expanded safety initiatives will
take effect Wednesday, Oct. 27, on the Newark campus. The initiatives
were announced by John Long, executive vice president and chief
operating officer, who is responsible for UD operations including units
in charge of campus and public safety and facilities, among others.
“The safety of our community is our top concern and we’ll be actively
driving improvement of all available resources for our students to
address that priority head on,” Long said. “Working closely with
President Assanis and other campus leaders, we have established pilot
ride share programs to improve transportation access and responsiveness
for our students, particularly as they travel from central campus to
their residences on and off campus during the evening. We will continue
to evaluate these programs and look for additional measures to develop

The Escort Program run by the University of Delaware Police
Department (UDPD) will be expanded with the addition of a golf-cart
service that will transport students to on-campus locations, including
academic buildings, laboratories, the library and residence halls,
during evening hours. Available from 6 p.m.-1 a.m., seven days a week
for the remainder of the fall semester, the service will be available to
students who call 831-RIDE or use a new service option button on the LiveSafe app.
This initiative builds on UDPD’s popular walking escort service, which is available 24 hours a day/seven days a week.
Also, Transportation Services will offer a new shuttle service for
students who are traveling from campus to their nearby off-campus
residences. This service also will be available from 6 p.m.-1 a.m.,
seven days a week. The four pick-up points for this service will be the
Morris Library, Perkins Student Center, Townsend Hall and the north end
of the STAR Health Sciences Building on the STAR Campus, and requests
can be made using the same 831-RIDE phone number or the LiveSafe app.
Coverage area for the service can be seen on this map.
In related action steps, the University is also evaluating all safety
lighting throughout the Newark campus for potential additions and
upgrades. In addition, the blue light phone system, which features
illuminated phones located throughout the campus, is being reviewed,
tested and, where necessary, upgraded. Anyone who picks up a blue light
phone is immediately connected directly to the University Police
All members of the University of Delaware community are advised to
download the LiveSafe App on their smartphones. The free app leverages
the components of smartphone technology, such as GPS location, camera
and text capabilities, to provide direct and seamless contact with the
UD Police Department for a range of safety issues. Instructions on how
to download the app, as well as information about other services and
resources, are available on the UD Police website.
