Wilkes University


Download the Wilkes Shield Safety App

Wilkes University’s Department of Public Safety is proud to launch “Wilkes Shield,” a free safety app that allows users to immediately report incidents on campus. Send texts, photos, video and precise location information to report incidents ranging from routine maintenance needs to suspicious activity and safety threats. Wilkes is one of the first schools in Pennsylvania to introduce the app.

Wilkes Shield connects you to public safety officers while automatically providing your campus location. The Department of Public Safety receives messages in real time and can respond via a live chat feature. If you’re not on campus, you will be routed to the closest 911 center, allowing first responders to rapidly address calls for assistance.

Download the app now. It's available for free on both Android and iPhone devices.
