Department of Public Safety Alerts
Access to Timely Information “Timely Warnings”
A “Timely Warning” is issued when Department of Public Safety officials and campus administrators believe a crime poses an ongoing threat to the students faculty, and staff. In the event of an emergency, the Department of Public Safety will utilize the University Emergency Notification System.
On occasion there may be incidents that occur that do not require activation of the Emergency Notification System, but may constitute an ongoing or continuing threat to the University community which would require the Department of Public Safety to publish a “Public Safety Alert” notice.
The Public Safety Alert Notice will include the crime or incident, location, description of the perpetrators, time and date of occurrence, and any other information deemed necessary.
Anyone with information warranting a Public Safety Alert Notice should report the incident to the Public Safety Department by phone at 215.596.7000, or in person at the Public Safety Office, which is located at Alumni Hall, 4200 Woodland Avenue.
The University community is encouraged to check the DPS Alerts and the Daily Crime Log on a regular basis so you can take the necessary precautions to stay safe.
