Police receive award for innovative excellence

UNG was recently honored with an Excellence in Innovation award by LiveSafe, which contracts with UNG to supply a public safety app. Nick Parker shows off the award, which resembles a belt.

Based on the seamless integration of the COVID-19 reporting option on the LiveSafe app, the University of North Georgia (UNG) was recently honored with an Excellence in Innovation award.

LiveSafe, which contracts with UNG to supply a public safety app, recognized the university with the highest accolade among its 400-plus clients. Some of those clients include other University System of Georgia institutions.

"We were highly impressed with UNG's commitment to leveraging the latest technology innovations to help get their students and staff back to campus safely," said Carolyn Parent, CEO of LiveSafe. "UNG's public safety and emergency preparedness leadership demonstrated a keen understanding of the capabilities LiveSafe brought to the COVID-19 challenge and they executed the rollout with dedication and precision."

Nick Parker, public safety systems specialist with UNG Police, said LiveSafe collaborated with UNG to integrate the new reporting section into the public safety app. It helped make UNG's reporting and contact tracing a success, he said.

"We were ahead of the game of implementing this reporting process," said Greg Williams, associate director of emergency preparedness at UNG. "While other schools were talking about it, we pushed it and finished it before our students returned to campus."
