  • Received a commitment from University City District to have their mobile and bicycle patrols make more frequent drives through the USciences campus area.
  • Received a commitment from the Philadelphia Police to place special attention on our campus area which will also offer additional police presence driving through the campus area in both marked and unmarked patrol vehicles. 
  • Public Safety has Contracted with a security firm to provide additional officers to patrol our campus area.

As an update, the Philadelphia Police have informed us that they have arrested the individual responsible for the robbery near Dunkin Donuts.
