Personal Security & Safety Registration

Welcome to ECU’s personal security and safety application NowForce.

Whether you would like to report seeing something a little suspicious, have security staff to walk with you to your car, or simply to want your own personal duress alarm, this app is for you.

This works as your personal security phone, allowing you to contact ECU Security at the touch of a button. In the unlikely event you need urgent assistance, the application provides a personal SOS button, which notifies our security team of your exact location, and starts recording events so we can get help to you straight away.

This application is provided free of charge to all ECU students & staff, with 24/7 monitoring from our dedicated security control room.

Every SOS activation will alert the ECU Security Team, and will be followed up with a security response. Please remember ECU’s Values of Integrity and Respect by refraining from activating the SOS button unless you are reporting a genuine emergency. Click here for support

  • When in SOS mode, the application will continue to update ECU Public Safety with your location.
