SUBJECT: || Community Alert Bulletin – Campus Threats|
Yesterday evening (3/17) and this afternoon (3/18) UC San Diego Police
(UCPD) was notified about a threat of violence to the UC San Diego
campus written on the inside surfaces of three women’s restroom doors.
Our University takes every threat of violence extremely seriously and
the UC San Diego Police Department has responded and is investigating.
The postings are generalized and non-specific. UCPD has interviewed
potential witnesses and is reviewing video in an attempt to identify the
person(s) responsible for these postings. Once found, we will seek
prosecution to the fullest extent of the law. If you have any
information about the identity of the person(s) responsible, please
contact UC San Diego Police at 858-534-4357 or email@example.com.
After consulting with UCPD, our Behavioral Threat Team, local and
federal law enforcement, and a threat assessment expert, the campus has
decided to continue with its regular schedule during finals week. Please
be aware we will have additional UCPD presence on campus. As always, if
you see or hear anything suspicious or have any concerns, please call
the UC Police (911-Emergency & 858-534-4357 – Non-Emergency).
Finally, we want to remind our community that threats are a serious
matter. Threats are considered a felony, a crime punishable by
imprisonment. In addition to criminal punishment, those who make threats
face academic and/or administrative penalties.
