The tragic shooting in Oregon serves as a sobering reminder that safety and security is both our individual and collective responsibility, and each of us contributes in important ways.

Over the weekend, the FBI and ATF (Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms) notified all area colleges and universities of social media posts directing threats of violence at an institution of higher learning near Philadelphia on Monday, October 5. While there is no threat against a specific college or university, the advisory reminds us we must vigorously monitor our surroundings and work together to keep the city safe.

The College’s Department of Safety and Security has increased security and is working with the Philadelphia Police Department to increase patrols on the College’s Main Campus and the West, Northwest and Northeast Regional Centers.

Please report suspicious activity to security at (215)751-8111 or call extension 5555 from a College phone. Call 911 to report any active threat to law enforcement.
