I consider this a better investment in our campus security infrastructure than throwing money at our blue light emergency phones.“
Every parent I’ve talked to is so thankful that our college offers the upper echelon of personal safety in the POM.
It just makes you feel safe. You just hit a button and someone comes to help.
One way or another, if someone needs a service from us, they’re going to be calling us … directly on a phone or using this device. I would rather they use this device.
It’s great having what is effectively the blue light system in your pocket.
Here are some facts and figures about the current POM deployment in the education sector.

Here are a few select examples of POM being used by students.
Lost & Found
In the first week of school, a group of freshman were partying in a city near campus. After a night out, the students couldn’t find their way back to campus and realized they were lost. One of the students tapped their POM and were connected with campus safety. The Dispatcher got their location and was able to guide them back to campus.
The POM was used during a medical emergency off-campus. A student started experiencing a panic attack, that included vomiting and shaking. She activated the POM and got in touch with 911 and Campus Safety. Campus Safety responded directly to her location and brought her to the hospital.
A Student had just left campus and was walking downtown. She was approached by two strangers who demanded her wallet. She handed over her wallet and the thieves fled. Feeling totally afraid and not knowing what to do, the student pressed her POM for help. Campus safety was able to calm her down and take a statement for police.
On one occasion there was a chemical accident on campus. Students were able to notify Campus Safety with the POM before being affected by the chemical fumes. Campus safety communicated with the students through the POM and directed the students to evacuate the area. A response team was then able to respond quickly to the area with pinpoint accuracy to avoid any serious injuries or damage.
Assault and Attempted Murder
One harrowing example of POM’s effectiveness came from a mother in her mid thirties who helped distribute the POM on campus. The Air Force veteran liked the POM so much and wanted one for herself. Just one day after setting up her POM on August 25th, 2017, she was physically attacked by a man in her home. The man started to strangle her so she reached into her pocket and activated her POM which called 911 dispatch. The dispatcher’s voice came through the POM speaker and startled the attacker which caused him to flee. The attacker was later arrested and put in jail. In her own words, “the POM helped save my life.’’ She admitted there was no way she could have gotten to her phone to dial 911.
One of our users shared her experience using the POM.
What’s your favorite POM feature?
“My favorite POM feature is being able to have my choice as to who I can reach out to if I’m in danger. The POM device provides me with more options to contact someone besides Public Safety if I am in need of help. Personally I have my mother as that contact and what I think is even better is the POM will send a text message to that person as well. So my mom and I have a code and if she receives that code she knows I need help.”
When do you normally use your POM?
“I use my POM all the time! It is on when I arrive to campus and I also use it when I go out as well with friends or even by myself. If I’m out by myself i feel so much safer with it device with me. It provides me and my family a piece of mind.”
What’s your favorite place to keep your POM (on your lanyard, keychain, bag etc)?
“I typically keep my POM device with my keys. My keys are always with me and so is my POM. “
How does POM improve your sense of personal safety?
“As stated before it definitely gives my family and I a piece of mind when I’m out and about away from their connection. I’m just a click away to safety.”
