Campus Safety Week in Review: March 20 – April 2, 2017

Important Note: As of March 29, 2017, Campus Safety is no longer providing reports regarding false fire and intrusion alarms. A message from Greg Premo, Director of Campus Safety:

“We are no longer taking reports on false alarms. Dispatch notes are sufficient. If [officers] respond to an alarm and find something then a report may be necessary. Such as, fire alarm is triggered by someone burning candles in a room. This is a policy violation and this would result in a policy violation report. If [officers] respond to an intrusion alarm and find a broken window then we have a burglary report.”

This week in Campus Safety news: Campus Safety changes their false-alarm reporting policy, an unresponsive student is assisted in Pflueger Residence Hall, and an ominous threat is left on the vehicle of a student near South Hall. Explore our interactive incident map to learn more.
