Our Inspiration

The founding of Secure Campus was inspired while Dave was visiting the campus where his wife of 25 years teaches school. The Security Director, familiar with his background in technology, expressed the need for a better system for staff to alert Security of emergency situations. Dave volunteered to research what smartphone technology was available. His findings were systems that were expensive and complicated. Dave knew the real solution had to be easy to use, especially in an emergency situation, yet able to communicate all of the relevant and necessary information to security personnel and other responders. Secure Campus provides a service that does just that. Anyone with the app is able to easily request immediate help and response during a crisis situation.
