Bomb Threat Procedure

In the event a bomb threat is received by telephone, the call taker will attempt to ascertain as much information as possible from the caller and contact Public Safety immediately at extension 1078 or 55.

If a bomb threat is received by e-mail, the receiver will first print a copy of the e-mail, call Public Safety and then forward the e-mail threat to the Director of Public Safety at PublicSafety@liu.edu. Under no circumstance should the receiver delete the e-mail threat.

Upon receipt of information of a bomb threat to the Brooklyn Campus, the Department of Public Safety will take all action steps as outlined in the Emergency Management Procedure Manual and the Department of Public Safety Standards of Operation Manual to ensure the safety and security of the affected area and campus community.

Local law enforcement authorities will be notified by the Department of Public Safety of all threats against the Campus. The Director of Public Safety or his/her designee will issue an "ALL-CLEAR" message after consulting with law enforcement and applicable campus officials, and only when all officials are in agreement that there is not an active threat to the Campus and the area is safe for students, faculty, staff and/or visitors.
