A new app that allows students, parents and staff to report threats and suspicious activity directly to local law enforcement has launched.
The app, called StudentProtect, a collaboration between the School District of Palm Beach County, District Police Department and Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office, has the ability for the user to dial 911 and have the exact GPS location of their mobile device sent to first responders. Users can also subscribe to specific schools to receive alerts and notifications from law enforcement. Available for Apple and Android devices by searching “PBC StudentProtect”.
