In our continuing effort to increase safety and awareness, the District Police Department has adopted several new technologies designed to relay important information and increase awareness for all who visit our campuses.
Students, faculty, staff, visitors and parents are strongly encouraged to sign up today for one, or all of our emergency alert/notification solutions listed below. Through education and awareness, you will increase your personal safety, as well as the safety of those around you.
Public Alert Software
Alerts with Rave
Delta's new partnership with Rave Mobile Safety allows district police to issue emergency alerts in a matter of seconds. Those alerts can be sent by email, text, and voice message, and will be automatically posted on the website and the College's social media platform.
You may sign in using your current Delta College email address. You will then be prompted to complete the registration process. You can update your contact information and choose your notification preferences.
In order to receive alerts by text message, you will need to opt in. You can do so by texting SJDCAlert to 226787 (CAMPUS). Please note that if you choose to receive text alerts, your cell phone provider may charge a per-text message fee.
Rave Guardian App
We strongly encourage you to use the free Rave Guardian app for mobile devices. You can download it from the App Store or Google Play.
Rave Guardian allows you to receive alerts even when you don't have a cell signal, to connect with emergency services in seconds, and to discreetly send anonymous tips to police, among other features.
The District Police Department regularly posts arrests, crime prevention tips, statistics, emergency notifications and general topics of interest. This social networking endeavor began in 2011 and has proven an effective and relevant manner in which to keep students, staff, faculty and visitors informed.
