With Athens Watchdawg, we’re empowering you to be autonomous. Instead of fearing walking alone at night or in dangerous areas, we want you to be confident in your independence. Our mission is to educate others within the community and change both the attitudes and behaviors associated with personal safety.
Our app, Athens Watchdawg, is a responsive measure for those who are traveling alone, It features GPS tracking, touch screen trigger technology, and the ability to notify both emergency contacts and the UGA Police.
For now, Athens Watchdawg has been specifically designed for the UGA campus and Athens community, however, the creators plan to branch the app out to other cities throughout the country.
