The following procedures should be followed in the event you receive a phone call, a verbal or physical threat, or suspicious mail or a package.
Remain calm, call the University Police Department at x4444, and contact your department head as well.
Obtain the following information by using the Bomb Threat Checklist.
Do not touch or move a suspicious package. Common characteristics of suspicious packages are an unexpected delivery, the lack of a return address, excessive postage, and stains, strange odors or sounds. Do not assume it is the only package. Be familiar with Letter and Parcel Recognition Points.
If the threat is received in writing, the letter or note should be turned over to the University Police Department who, in turn, will relay the note to the proper authorities. The note should be handled as little as possible as it may be useful in an investigation.
If the threat was left on a voicemail, notify the Police Department immediately and do not delete or forward the message.
