Campus safety update

Dear Temple community,

We recently shared messages from President Wingard regarding the funeral arrangements for Officer Fitzgerald and various ways to support Officer Fitzgerald’s family.

As our community mourns Officer Fitzgerald at the viewing and funeral today and tomorrow, the Philadelphia Police Department (PPD) will assist with security coverage on campus and within the university patrol zones for Main Campus and the Health Sciences Center. Overall coverage and response times will remain the same. 

The TUPD Communications Center, 215-204-1234, will remain fully staffed for calls and dispatch support. Additional Allied Universal security officers will be on patrol for any walking escort requests and to support the police. Student services, Flight shuttles and walking escorts will continue as usual this weekend. 

We encourage you to take this time to review existing safety resources so that you can help keep your students informed.
