Introduce an app putting people in contact with the security team when on campus if they're in an unsafe situation

In light of the Sarah Everard vigil, women everywhere came out with experiences that are far too normalised for us, with those in positions of power often dismissing harrassment and assault cases. The ability to contact security discretely when in a trapped or unsafe situation would help prevent these situations occurring in the first place, and make campus a safer place, not just for women, but for everyone. Reading University are looking to implement this and I think it's an incredible start to making campus more accessible and safer.
