New Chicago Public Safety App

​​​Students are encouraged to download a new phone app created by the Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications. This OEMC app includes a 'CHI Safe Walk' feature to use when traveling alone, allowing you to share your location with a friend or family member as you proceed to your destination. Other features include interactive city maps, access to current weather conditions, road closures, special events safety information, and emergency-management related services. Please note, DePaul Public Safety does not monitor or maintain this app. Students can download the app from the online app stores​
