Safety and Security Services:

• Walking Escort Service:  (215) 898-WALK (9255).  Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, between 43rd & 30th Streets and Market Street to Baltimore Avenue. Escorts are also available from 10 a.m. until 3 a.m. between 50th & 30th Streets and Spring Garden Street to Woodland Avenue via the University’s partnership with the University City District Ambassador Program.

• How to Request a Walking Escort:

Ask any Public Safety Officer on patrol or inside a building.

Call (215) 898-WALK (9255) or 511 (from campus phone).

Use one of the many building and blue-light phones located on and off Penn’s campus.

• UPennAlert: The UPennAlert Emergency Notification System enables fast and efficient dissemination of critical information to members of the University community during a major emergency via text messaging, voicemail, email, digital displays and the Penn Siren Outdoor System (Penn SOS). 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 https://portal.apps.upenn.edu/penn_portal/portal.php

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 300 blue-light phones on campus and in the surrounding community. Just pick up the receiver or press the button.

• Penn Guardian: Penn Guardian is a free and optional service that is available to anyone with a PennKey and a valid Penn ID number. This service allows PennCard holders to voluntarily provide information about themselves, such as a medical condition, which may be helpful to know during an emergency.

Penn Guardian also provides police with GPS coordinates from a user’s cell phone, which can decrease response time and allow first responders to locate them if they are not able to provide their location.

Registering for the Penn Guardian System is quick and easy!

Simply visit www.publicsafety.upenn.edu/getpennguardian and log in with your PennKey. Update your profile by adding information such as your physical description, a photo, your address, known allergies or other optional medical information. Lastly, choose a unique PIN number and you are fully registered to use Penn Guardian.

• Property Registration: Penn students and faculty/staff can register their bicycles, electronic equipment and other valuable property, online with the University of Pennsylvania Police Department. Students can also purchase a U-Lock through their SFS account.

Students: Access Campus Express Online via http://campusexpress.upenn.edu

Faculty/Staff: Access U@Penn via www.upenn.edu/u@penn

• Safety Presentations and Materials: Members of the Division of Public Safety will provide safety information including brochures, videos and presentations upon request.

• Preventing Theft on Campus: Unattended theft is the number one crime here at Penn. The majority of all theft reported to the Penn Police occurs because items are left unattended or are improperly secured.

    1.   All items should be taken with you at all times.

    2.   U-Locks, NOT cable locks, should be used on bikes.

    3.   You should always lock your doors, even if leaving for a few minutes.

    4.   Always report suspicious activity by contacting the Division of Public Safety at (215) 573-3333 or 511 from a campus phone.

• (215) 898-HELP line: The HELP Line is a 24-hour-a-day phone number for members of the Penn community who are seeking time sensitive help in navigating Penn’s resources for health and wellness.

Any member of the Penn community can utilize this service by calling (215) 898-HELP (4357). Calls will be answered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by Division of Public Safety professionals trained in mental health referrals by staff from Counseling and Psychological Services (CAPS).

Students who are dealing with the complex emotional challenges of university life can use the HELP Line to receive information and referrals to the many health and wellness resources at Penn, including CAPS, Student Health Service, Student Intervention Services, Public Safety and others. They may also call on behalf of a friend or acquaintance. Parents who are concerned about their student may also call the HELP Line for assistance.

• 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.
