Black Bear Safe App

Black Bear Safe is a free app for the campus community to gain quick and easy access to on-campus safety resources including emergency notifications and contacts. It is the only app that integrates with the University of Maine’s safety and security systems.

The University of Maine Police Department (UMPD) has worked to develop this unique app that provides students, faculty, and staff with added safety on the University of Maine campus. The app will send you important safety alerts and provide access campus safety resources.

If you are parked a far distance away and don’t feel safe on your walk to your destination, the “monitor me while I walk to my vehicle” feature can send your location and destination, using Friend Walk or Virtual Walkhome, to a friend or a UMaine PD dispatcher so they can track your progress on a map. 

Users can also: 

  • Activate a “Mobile BlueLight” to send their location and a call to UMaine PD dispatchers
  • Submit crime tips via the in-app form, over the phone, via chat with UMaine PD dispatchers, or anonymously using Campus Eyes
  • Access support resources for Title IX, Health Counseling, and Mental Health Counseling
  • View campus Emergency Plans including appropriate contact phone numbers
  • Access other UMaine applications such as Navigate.
