Check out IUPD-Bloomington on Facebook. Campus police have begun using social media as they continue working to become more accessible to students and staff.
It’s important to dial 911 for help during emergencies. Facebook viewers can expect safety tips, traffic and weather-related information, helpful resources – such as info about upcoming self-defense training — and a glimpse of IU’s men and women in blue, who work to make IU a safety place to learn, work and visit.
And they can even expect some cute animal pics — officers rescued a cat that was stuck beneath a car on Tuesday.
“We want you to learn more about us and our services,” said Operations Capt. Andy Stephenson. “We want to hear from you, too. Let us know about safety concerns, questions you may have about the division.”
IUPD-Bloomington likely will expand to other social media platforms – let us know which we should try next.
IU Public Safety is part of Public Safety and Institutional Assurance, which falls under the Office of the Executive Vice President for University Academic Affairs and the Office of the Vice President for IT and CIO.
