• UPennAlert: The UPennAlert Emergency Notification System enables fast and efficient dissemination of critical information to members of the University community during a major emergency via text messaging, voicemail, e-mail, digital displays and the Penn Siren Outdoor System (Penn SOS). If you have not done so already, please take a few minutes now to register or update your contact information. All information is secure and confidential.

     Students: Access Penn InTouch via Penn Portal at www.upenn.edu/penn_portal

     Faculty/Staff: Access the Penn Directories via www.upenn.edu/directories

• Blue Light Phones: If you observe a potential safety hazard, need a walking escort, or require Penn Police assistance, contact the Division of Public Safety from one of more than over 300 blue-light phones on campus and in the surrounding community. Just pick up the receiver or press the button.

• PennGuardian: PennGuardian is available to you as a member of the Penn community. This service allows PennComm, the DPS emergency communications center, to identify you and your GPS coordinates when you call from a registered cell phone. Once your cell phone number has been registered, a dispatcher will be able to view the profile information that you have entered only when you call the DPS emergency number—(215) 573-3333.   To activate this service, please register your cell phone number at www.publicsafety.upenn.edu/getpennguardian

• Preventing Theft on Campus: Unattended theft is the number one crime here at Penn. The majority of all theft reported to the Penn Police occurs because items are left unattended or are improperly secured.

    1.   All items should be taken with you at all times.

    2.   U-Locks, NOT cable locks, should be used on bikes.

    3.   You should always lock your doors, even if leaving for a few minutes.

    4.   Always report suspicious activity by contacting the Division of Public Safety at (215) 573-3333 or 511 from a campus phone.

• Safety Practices: The Division of Public Safety asks that all University community members engage the idea that “Safety and Security is a Shared Responsibility.” Please remember to take your personal property with you at all times, don’t leave doors unlocked and report suspicious behavior.
