UTPD returns to normal operations following bomb threat


UTPD will continue to investigate the source of Wednesday's non-specific bomb threat but will decrease law enforcement presence on campus.

In a campus-wide statement, UT spokeswoman Cindy Posey said UTPD feels “comfortable ... returning to normal operations at this time.”

On Wednesday April 10 at approximately 6 p.m., a non-specific bomb threat was made to the University by an anonymous individual. UTPD boosted its presence on campus, monitoring buildings for 24 hours and responded to suspicious activity and object reports. No buildings were evacuated.

In the statement, Posey asks the public to be wary of unusual practices and objects and said any suspicious activity should be reported to UTPD at 512-471-4441.
