Texas Tech students will have a new tool that will help them file a report after a sexual assault. The Texas Safety U is an app specifically designed for individual state universities. It walks victims through the process of reporting the crime, and helps them know what to do if the un-thinkable happens.
Leslie Timmons is a community educator and said this app is a great resource.
"Te more resources that we can provide to sexual assault victims the better, knowledge is power. The more resources, the more knowledge, the more awareness that we can get into the community the better."
The new app also encourages friends to watch out for each other.
