A Message to the University Community from the Division of Public Safety
The safety and security of the Penn Community is of paramount importance to each and every member of the Division of Public Safety. In response to yesterday's tragic events, the Division of Public Safety has taken extra measures to ensure the safety of our community. The University Police Department will be fully staffed until further notice. We have taken measures to secure our entire campus, utilizing both police and security personnel. We would like to extend our sincere appreciation to the University Community for the cooperation and response we have received during these troubling times.
Additionally, we would like to take this opportunity to revisit best security practices to be followed at all times:
For additional information on these and other security measures, please visit the University's emergency information website at www.upenn.edu/about/emergency_preparedness.php. In particular, please review the protocol for suspicious packages as well as the checklist for telephone threats.
Thank you for your cooperation during these trying times.
