Statement of Acting Chancellor Norman Abrams Regarding Campus Security
The UCLA community is deeply saddened by the
shooting deaths on the campus of
At UCLA, protection of students, faculty, staff and visitors remains our top priority, and campus leadership works closely with the campus police department and units across campus. Whenever possible, we attempt to identify problematic situations and address them before they become more serious. Multiple campus committees work regularly on workplace violence issues. And police officer training includes scenarios involving shootings.
In addition, UCLA has an emergency response team and protocols in place to notify the campus community in the event of any circumstances requiring emergency action, such as the closing of the campus.
Many campus safety programs and resources are available to students, faculty and staff. Information on safety at UCLA and links to other campus services are available on the UCLA Police Department site, www.ucpd.ucla.edu. Members of the campus community are encouraged to make use of the many resources available to them.
Students or others wishing to report suspicious activity on campus should call the UCLA Police Department at (310) 825-1491. Students seeking psychological assistance are encouraged to contact UCLA's Student Psychological Services at (310) 825-0768 or via www.sps.ucla.edu.
