Message from Public Safety
Message to the University Community,
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 Tuesday'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.
we would like to take this opportunity to revisit best security
practices to be followed at all times:
any suspicious packages, threatening phone calls, or e-mails to
the UPPD by calling 511 from any campus phone or by calling (215)
573-3333 from any off-campus phone.
you observe any suspicious behavior by persons in or around campus
buildings, call the UPPD or report the activity by using the nearest
Blue Light Emergency phone. 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.
you for your cooperation during these trying times.
Rush, Vice President for Public Safety
