We could not be more grateful for the double dose of kindness we received today. This morning, Penn State students Jacob Michelman and Carolyn Sistrand got up bright and early to drop off coffee and doughnuts to our University Police station at University Park. The students were inspired by ethics and diversity courses and wanted to show appreciation for our department. And then this afternoon two more students - Danny Koury and Christina Demoss - dropped off bagels and a supportive banner signed by their business ethics classmates. We could not be more proud to serve the Penn State community. #weare #pennstate #universitypark #grateful #thankyou

Representatives from #PennState, including Brian Bittner, director of emergency management, and Lt. Matt White with University Police, recently attended the 2018 National Seminar and Tabletop Exercise for Institutions of Higher Education at the University of Texas at #SanAntonio. This is a statue outside of the #UTSA student union center. The seminar, led by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, was a two-day event that helps prepare higher education officials to respond to a campus emergency. #dhs #fema #nttx

University Police and Public Safety at Penn State would like to make the greater Borough of State College community aware that law enforcement, including University Police, and other emergency responders from throughout Centre County will be conducting a readiness exercise on Tuesday, Oct. 23 at the Pine Hall Building off of Science Park Road in Ferguson Township. Motorists and pedestrians may notice the police activity in the vicinity of Science Park and Pine Hall roads, therefore UPPS wants to reassure the public that this is only an exercise.

It may seem convenient to report a crime or suspicious behavior through social media, but the best way to receive a police response is to call 911. Social media channels are not monitored 24/7 and are not intended for emergency communication.

Aside from being one of the best paid jobs for students on-campus, Penn State auxiliary officers acquire skills in management, communication, and situation de-escalation. Gain hands-on experience and apply today at
