If you have not done so already, please take a few minutes now to register or update your contact information. All information is secure and confidential.

     Students: Access Penn InTouch via Penn Portal at www.upenn.edu/penn_portal

     Faculty/Staff: Access the Penn Directories via, www.upenn.edu/directories

• Blue Light Phones: If you observe a potential safety hazard, need a walking escort, or require Penn Police assistance, contact the Division of Public Safety from one of more than over 300 blue-light phones on campus and in the surrounding community. Just pick up the receiver or press the button.

• PennGuardian: This service allows PennComm, the DPS emergency communications center, to identify your GPS coordinates when you call from a cell phone that you have registered with Penn Guardian.  Penn Guardian is available to you as a member of the Penn community. To activate this service, you must sign up and register your cell phone number at www.publicsafety.upenn.edu/getpennguardian.

• Safety Practices: The Division of Public Safety asks that all University community members engage the idea that “Safety and Security is a Shared Responsibility.” Please remember to take your personal property with you at all times, don’t leave doors unlocked and report suspicious behavior.
