Kinetic Global

Kinetic Global Personal Safety App

Visit to download app.

Student Life and University Police have partnered to bring an exciting phone app to ASU called Kinetic Global. The app is available at no cost to students, faculty, and staff. Primary student funding for Kinetic Global is possible through the Student Organization Leadership Fund.

Kinetic Global is a personal safety mobile application for iPhone and Android. While you are walking around campus or about your daily lives, you can arm the app by placing your thumb on your smartphone screen. To initiate immediate emergency response, all you have to do is remove your thumb from the screen. If something happens to you, authorities can be dispatched within seconds. A hands-free timer mode can be used for longer activities such as jogging, carrying books or shopping bags or walking through a parking lot to find your car.

Not only does Kinetic Global alert a 24-hour call center during an emergency, it also provides the call center and up to seven chosen lifelines with real-time GPS location and tracking. This feature helps responding emergency personnel pinpoint your exact location and expedites their response.

Angelo State was one of the first universities in the country to offer this phone app to its campus community.

Alertus Desktop™

The University Police Department, Information Technology and the Office of Environmental Health, Safety and Risk Management have been testing a new software program called Alertus Desktop™. This companion software will further enhance emergency ASUAlert notifications to the campus community. A small-scale test of the Alertus Desktop™ software was incorporated into the October campus-wide annual test of ASUAlert.

Alertus Desktop™ is an enterprise software solution for overriding computer displays across a network system with critical alert messages. When an alert is initiated, targeted client computers are overridden with a full-screen alert containing information regarding the nature of the campus emergency. Recipients simply click an acknowledgment button at the bottom of their screen to close the alert and simultaneously provide acknowledgment to campus safety officials who originated the notification.

The ability of Alertus Desktop™ to “push” emergency messages out to networked PCs will further assist campus emergency officials in disseminating important information and alerting individuals to specific campus emergencies. The new feature should be fully implemented and operational in early Spring 2013.

Annual Security and Fire Safety Report

The purpose of the Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is to provide our faculty, staff and students with campus safety information including crime and fire statistics. In addition, the report provides other valuable information pertaining to campus safety.

New 911 Lifeline Law Intended to Save Lives

A new law passed by the Texas Legislature in 2011 means that a person under 21 won’t be charged by the police for possessing or consuming alcohol if the person calls 911 because someone might have alcohol poisoning. Read more about the 911 Lifeline Policy.


The University Police Department has partnered with LeadsOnline to offer a free service called “Report It”. This online system allows users to enter and maintain secure records on the property they own. Users may store serial numbers, item descriptions, pictures and even scanned receipts that can easily be identified in the event of theft or loss. Your account can be accessed from anywhere via a secure site. “Report It” is searchable and even allows users the ability to print a full inventory of their property and valuables. This feature is extremely important for law enforcement should you be the victim of a theft.

To start entering your items, go to the Report It website or view the Report IT flyer for more information.
