Lafayette Student Protect App Launched By LPSO And LPSS

The Lafayette Parish Sheriff’s Office, in partnership with the Lafayette Parish School System, is proud to announce the launch of a new app geared at further increasing the safety and security of students, teachers and faculty members throughout Lafayette Parish.

The “Lafayette Student Protect” App is now available as a free resource for students and their parents to stay updated on all important information, alerts, and reminders pertaining to safety in their child’s school, as well as the entire parish.

All push notifications on the app will be sent and monitored by the Sheriff’s “Student Resource Officer” (SRO) Program Administrators.

Students, Parents, and LPSS Faculty can:

– Submit anonymous tips
– Report suspicious or unsafe activity
– Alert law enforcement of an emergency with the tap of a button
– Receive important bulletins from school administrators

The app is also designed to reduce the amount of misinformation that is common during a disaster or emergency situation.

Sheriff Mark Garber, and Superintendent Dr. Donald Aguillard were on hand today to unveil and explain the many benefits this App will provide for students, teachers and faculty members throughout Lafayette Parish.

Students, parents, faculty are encouraged to download as soon as possible.
