Many colleges constantly struggle with crime effecting their student body. They may have guards, cameras, etc., yet they are lacking a key way to help prevent crime: empowering and enlightening the student. They need to be more aware of crime, more informed of security information, and need simple ways to staying connected.
In order to empower the students themselves, they need a system that will make them pay attention to risk, informed of security statistics, and more connected with each other and security guards. Crime tagging the environment, a wallet-sized crime booklet, a community website, and iPhone app as a system could do just that.
