DPS Open House 10/3/2013

Please join us on Thursday, October 3rd from 1:00pm-4:00pm for our annual DPS Open House.

Visitors can take a behind-the-scenes tour of the PennComm Operations Center, which serves as the command and control center for the Divison of Public Safety.  Visitors can take a turn on the firearm training simulator; used for police officer training, the simulator tests instincts and response to scenarios that may require the use of deadly force.

“We invite the Penn community and the public to come and see why our public safety team has been recognized for six years in a row as the No. 1 program in the nation’s higher education market by Security Magazine,” Maureen S. Rush, Vice President for Public Safety, said. “This is an opportunity for everyone to get a look at exactly what we do here and to get a better understanding of how we all can work together to be partners in safety.”

During our open house, the public can meet and interact with members of the public safety team and get an overview of the services provided for the community. Also, visitors can check out the latest in law-enforcement vehicles, including Harley Davidson motorcycles and the T-3 electric security officer vehicles. Light refreshments will be served.
