Walking Escorts for Final Exams

December 6, 2011, Volume 58, No. 14

As in past years, the Division of Public Safety, working with the Undergraduate Assembly, is offering the Public Safety Walk-back Program. During reading days and finals, from Saturday, December 10 through Wednesday, December 21, an AlliedBarton Security Officer will be posted at the Button on Locust Walk from 10 p.m.-3:30 a.m. Approximately every 1/2 hour the officer will enter Van Pelt-Dietrich Library to determine if any student would like an escort. The Penn Public Safety Officer will then perform the escort and return to repeat the process.

The Division of Public Safety is providing this service in addition to its normal Walking Escort Programs. Uniformed AlliedBarton Security Officers provide escorts to campus locations. Escorts are dispatched by radio and will accompany you from one campus location to another, to a Penn Transit Stop or to an on-campus SEPTA regional transit stop. Escorts are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

To request a Walking Escort, call (215) 898-9255 (898-WALK), use any blue light phone or callbox or simply ask a Public Safety Officer.
