Merced College is now employing the 911Shield application, which links students and faculty directly to campus police in the event of an emergency.

The app, which is free to download from either the Google play or Apple App Store, allows users to make an emergency call straight to campus police, submit tips for crimes or suspicious activity, request a safety escort or review campus emergency procedures.

For more information, contact Merced College Campus Police at 209.384.6600.
