The Department of Public Safety extends a warm welcome to our students, faculty, staff, and guests. Security officers may be contacted 24 hours a day by utilizing the Carson-Newman LiveSafe Application or by calling (865) 548-9067. 911 should only be called for life-threatening emergencies only.
Carson-Newman University has partnered with LiveSafe to provide Emergency Notifications to faculty, staff, and students. This service is optional and only takes a few minutes of your time to sign up and we encourage every C-N employee and student to do so. This system will only be used for emergency notifications and other official notifications and will NOT be used for advertising. Some examples included Clery Act Required Emergency Notifications (Active Shooter, Predators on Campus, or Serious Criminal Offense) it will also be used for severer weather events such as thunderstorm warnings and tornado warnings. In the event of a campus emergency, a text message alert will be sent to your phone, an alert to the live safe application, and an e-mail to the address you selected when you signed up.
Please note that you may incur charges for text messaging, depending on the cell phone plan you have.
