Community Alert Bulletin – Campus Threats

UC SAN DIEGO POLICE DEPARTMENT

March 18, 2019

ALL ACADEMICS, STAFF AND STUDENTS AT UC SAN DIEGO

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 detective@ucsd.edu.

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.

Chief of Police
