Tools to Survive Targeted Violence

UCPD officers have all recieved extensive training on what to do in this situation, but it is equally important that our campus community members think of how they will respond.

If you witness any armed individual on campus at any time, immediately call UCPD to report the emergency 9-1-1 (or 510-642-3333 via cell phone). Use common sense. If escaping from danger is impossible, you should lockdown and prepare to counter the attacker.
