Trent Mobile & MyBeat

Two new ways to get alerts about Trent (e.g., emergencies, closures)

a) Trent Mobile: Trent University has introduced a mobile site that gives users anytime, anywhere, access to the latest campus information on their BlackBerry, iPhone, or Google Android mobile device.
The site is available at http://www.trentu.ca/mobile/ and offers access to:
- news, events, alerts – information about emergencies eg. closing due to weather, directions to our three campus locations, contact information, search contacts, news and events (not the Trent web site), links to our Facebook, Twitter and YouTube sites, a link to our full web site at http://www.trentu.ca

Browse to http://www.trentu.ca/mobile/ on your smartphone and bookmark it for quick access. The Integrated Web Presence team at Trent University will continue to add functionality to the mobile site. Please send any feedback you have to Marilyn Strain, marilynstrain@trentu.ca.

b) MyBeat: MyBeat provides alerts on everything from campus wide class cancellations to campus safety notices

Trent students and members of the community are encouraged to register for this valuable public safety tool to receive text messages or e-mails pertaining to crime and security notices provided by Trent University Risk Management department or the Peterborough Lakefield Community Police. The messages will be brief and may refer participants to other media for further information.

Anyone who resides, operates a business, is employed or visits in the City of Peterborough or the Village of Lakefield can register online at www.peterboroughpolice.com via the “MyBeat” button.

Types of alert messages that users may choose to receive by way of cellular phone and / or e-mail addresses are:
Trent University Alerts: means information pertaining to Trent University safety and emergencies.
Community Alerts: information such as road closures, power outages, and general interest items.
Crime Alerts: information relating to more serious crimes and crimes in progress.
Emergency Alerts: information relating to natural disasters and major incidents of public safety concern.
Fleming College Alerts: information pertaining to Fleming College safety and emergencies.
Neighbourhood Alerts: crime prevention information relating to the location that you reside or work.
School Alerts: information pertaining to School safety and emergencies.

The intention of the MyBeat program is to keep citizens informed of important events occurring that will heighten community awareness while carrying out daily activities, resulting in improved public safety. The program does not permit users to send a reply to alerts received. If you have information to provide to the police as a result of an alert please respond to the non-emergency police phone number (705) 876-1122 or in the case of an emergency call 911.

Cellphone providers may charge carriers for individual text messages, but there is no cost to join.
