A Lock Out prohibits unauthorized personnel into a building. All exterior doors are locked and the main entrance is monitored by the UPPD, Allied Security, and/or administrators. This procedure allows the occupants of a building to continue as normal, but curtails outside activity. A Lock Out is most commonly used when an incident is occurring outside a building.

 

Procedures

  • Lock all exterior doors and stay inside.
  • Prevent entry into building.
  • Continue with daily activity inside.
  • Be vigilant and immediately report any suspicious activity to Penn Police at 215-573-3333 or 511 from a campus phone.
  • Do not, under any circumstances, enter the building until authorized to do so by emergency personnel.
