On this episode of the Law Enforcement Social Media Podcast and COPS on Blab we talk about Safetrek the app with Rob Roderick the co-founder of the app.


SafeTrek is a mobile personal safety app that bridges the gap between doing nothing and calling 911 in an unsafe situation. SafeTrek allows you to proactively protect yourself without the heavy commitment of calling 911.

The way SafeTrek works is simple - If you are feeling unsafe, simply launch the app and hold your thumb down on the safe button. When you are safe, release your thumb and type in your 4 digit pin number. If the situation turns for the worse and you need help, simply release your thumb and do not type in your pin - your local police will be notified of your location, name, and emergency.

SafeTrek was developed by college students, for college students. After constantly receiving crime report emails and hearing stories from our friends about incidents that were occurring on campus, we decided to tackle the problem that the campus blue light system was failing to solve.

SafeTrek works anywhere in the US and is available on both iOS and Android.
