Statement on 2.26.18 UMPD Safety Message

To the university community,

I am writing to you today about an individual who is being held without bond for making a credible threat of violence toward University of Maryland police officers. This is very troubling, and we are tremendously grateful for the anonymous tip that allowed UMPD to act swiftly and protect our community.

We are working with every tool at our disposal to safeguard this campus. While this individual is in custody, he has also been issued a denial of access to campus.

This serves as a timely and important reminder that if you see or hear of any threats, please say something and contact authorities. UMPD will continue to keep our community informed via its website and social channels, and we thank them for their service to this university.

Sincerely,

Wallace D. Loh
