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.

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 Once your cell phone number has been registered, a dispatcher will be able to view the profile information that you have entered when you call the DPS emergency number—(215) 573-3333.

• 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.
