UWG Rolling Out New Security System This Fall – The WOLF News

By Bode Brooks, The WOLF News Director

The University of West Georgia is currently testing out a new device that could potentially make campus safer for students in the event of an emergency. The Peace of Mind Company (POMCO) POM is a small, circular device with a button in the center that’s designed to hang on a student’s keychain. Hold down the button, and the POM will send your location and personal information to University Police while simultaneously dialing out to UPD. The POM works through BlueTooth and location services on a student’s phone. The POM also features a panic alarm if the button is pressed rapidly, and on the accompanying app, there is also a feature to request a walking escort and find your keys. Currently, approximately fifty POM devices are being tested out by students at UWG. In the fall, UWG plans to issue a POM to all incoming freshman, and upperclassmen will be allowed to purchase a POM for $50.00. The Department of Student Affairs budget is covering the price of the POM units being issued on campus, so don’t expect a bump in fees this fall.
