Emergency Situation Information and Resources

The University of Pittsburgh Police Department, in conjunction with Facilities Management, Computing Services and Systems Development, and other departments, works proactively to prepare for and deal with emergencies.

If necessary, the University can electronically lock down 80 percent of the buildings on the Pittsburgh campus from the Communications Center at Pitt's Public Safety Building.

University police also have access to over 700 electronic surveillance cameras and over 500 emergency phones around campus, which are monitored 24 hours per day.
