GW PAL, or Personal Alarm Locator, is a mobile safety application developed for the George Washington University community. The application allows anyone on the Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon campuses to notify the George Washington Police Department (GWPD) of an emergency through their smartphone. When on campus and sending an alert, your GPS location and phone number are sent directly to GWPD. Users will also be able to send in crime tips, along with photos and videos if they choose. If off campus, GW PAL will prompt the user to dial 911 for emergency assistance.
