Active Shooter Emergency Information

Recent incidents of violence in workplaces, high schools, colleges, and universities have elevated safety concerns to a level never before experienced in the United States.  UD Police have received specialized training to respond to active shooters or other incidents involving violent attacks.  The City of Dayton Police and other police agencies would also be called to respond should such an incident occur on UD's campus.

UD has also taken physical security measures to reduce threats to our community through the use of the door access control system, video camera system, and alarm monitoring systems.  UD is currently researching other systems that will enhance our ability to effectively communicate with our campus community in the event of a crisis.

You as an individual are the most important element in helping to prevent and effectively respond to critical incidents. Students, faculty and staff should always be aware of their surroundings and immediately report any suspicious persons, activities, vehicles, or objects that appear to be unusual or out of place.
