Student and campus safety has always been a top priority for parents, schools and students. However, threats, bullying and violent actions are still increasing across schools nationwide. Last year we had the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history at Sandy Hook Elementary School of Newtown Connecticut. Just recently there was a shooting at Seattle Pacific University, with one dead and at least three injured. Furthermore, another mass shooting occured a few weeks ago with a number of students killed and injured near the University of California Santa Barbara.
Another recent story by Newswatch 16 reports of a man approaching children who were walking alone to Heights Elementary School, offering drugs and threatening to kidnap them.
How would you feel if your son, daughter or friend were at these schools at the time of a shooting, or being threatened by a stranger on their way to school? Do you want to be alerted if they are ever in danger and need help?
MobiLifestyle offers several mobile safety and security applications so that children, parents, students and campus police can stay connected to each other during emergencies, when their child's personal safety is being threatened, or when they are caught in other dangerous situations and want to know where their current location is.

Parent PatrolDo you want to know when your loved one or child has arrived safely at school, work, a friend’s house or other locations? Do you want to know when they leave a designated location before they were supposed to?
Parent Patrol gives you updated notifications of where they are when they leave the designated area. You can create a virtual boundary (or “safe zone”) for your child to stay within, then receive alerts immediately on your phone when your child leaves or enters that virtual boundary. Location updates are periodically sent to up to 10 contacts including parents.
Whether your child is in elementary school, high school or college/university, Parent Patrol can help parents stay informed of their child's whereabouts.
