Suspicious Package Safety

October 26, 2018  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

Recent news on explosive devices and suspicious packages intercepted by law enforcement may have you worried about your safety.

While there is no known connection between these incidents and the University of Michigan at this time; out of an abundance of caution, we would like everyone to be vigilant when receiving mail and packages.

If you receive something suspicious, avoid touching it and contact law enforcement immediately.

“The safety of our community is our top priority. It’s O.K. if it turns out to be a false alarm, don’t hesitate to call 911 or contact us at 734-763-1131 if you are on campus,” said Robert Neumann University of Michigan police chief.

The likelihood of receiving an explosive device in the mail is remote. However, the possibility does exist and can result in death, injury or destruction of property. Your best defense is—if you see something, say something.
