A reminder about campus safety

WVU Tech Community,

Last night, there were shootings off campus in the city of Montgomery. Based upon investigative reports, there was no threat to the University campus. Local police agencies are investigating, and as a precaution, University Police increased police staffing and patrols on campus throughout the night and will do so at least throughout the weekend.

While these incidents didn’t involve the campus community, this incident serves as a reminder of the importance of using good judgement and being observant of safety and security issues in our daily lives.

If you observe something unusual or suspicious or are concerned for your or others’ safety, you can use the LiveSafe App to alert University Police. For more information and to download the app to your mobile phone, visit our LiveSafe webpage.

WVU Tech also sends out text alerts to warn those who are subscribed to the service about emergency situations on and around campus. If you are currently not receiving WVU Tech text alerts, please sign up for the service today.

As always, members of the University community are encouraged to report suspicious behavior to University Police by calling 304-442-3101 or 911.
