Lock Down Procedures
LOCK DOWN AND EVACUATION FOR IMMINENT THREATS OF VIOLENCE
A lock down procedure will be used in an attempt to minimize the risk of violence and increase the safety of university students, employees and guests by restricting access and visibility by a threatening person or event internal or external to the university.
Students, staff, and faculty must report threatening activities to University Police by calling 230-5098 or 911. Students, staff and faculty who have reason to believe that there is an imminent threat of violence that could result in loss of life or serious injury are encouraged to take independent protective action. The University Police officer on duty will determine when to initiate a lock down or evacuation of one or more campus buildings when there is a clear and imminent threat.
The university will consider a knowingly false report of imminent danger a very serious offense and will respond accordingly. IMMINENT THREAT OF VIOLENCE
: A threat of violence MAY include, but is not limited to, a person on or near campus with a weapon or significant law enforcement action in the neighborhood adjacent to campus.
