Some members of our community have reported that they received an automated phone message regarding the university being on lock down. There is currently no emergency on campus and the university is NOT on lock down. The message was accidentally sent by Westminster police to a list of recipients that is not owned or managed by the university, but contained the Denver metro area phone numbers of some students and employees. Again, there is NOT an emergency on campus, the university is NOT on lock down, and all classes and activities are proceeding as scheduled. The university does not share emergency alerts over automated phone messages at this time. Any emergency alert sent by the university will be shared via emergency text alerts, email, social media and on safety.colostate.edu. To enroll in emergency text alerts, visit https://safety.colostate.edu/sign-up-for-emergency-alerts/.

Be safe. Be considerate. And take care of each other.

CSUPD is currently investigating the theft of a magnetic RamRide sign, which was stolen from a CSU vehicle on Sept. 14. This may be just a random theft, but CSUPD would like to remind the community that RamRide uses white university vehicles that have the green CSU logo on the front doors. If you see a RamRide sign on a vehicle that doesn't match that description, do not accept a ride, and please contact CSUPD at 970 491-6425.
