    Advisory: Possible Bomb Threat on the Stockton Campus

    Apr 25, 2010

    To the campus community; 

    Today, University officials were notified by the Stockton Police Department that a bomb threat directed at Pacific was received by the Stockton PD at 1 p.m. this afternoon, Sunday, April 25, 2010. The threat said that a bomb would be detonated on campus at 10 p.m. today.

    University police are currently going through the campus looking for any suspicious devices. So far, none have been found.

    Stockton PD has identified an off-campus phone where the call was made.  They are currently investigating the incident.  At this time, the University is not planning any changes to any on-campus events or building operations. We've reached out to state and federal law enforcement agencies and will be continuing to investigate and evaluate the potential for any ongoing threat to our campus.

    We ask that you look at your surroundings today. If you see a suspicious-looking package or an item seemingly out of place, do not touch it or examine it. Instead, immediately call Public safety at 209.946.3911, or head to the nearest blue emergency phone on campus and contact them using that.

    Also, please keep your cell phones handy as there may be a need to order evacuations, depending on what the Stockton PD determines. If an evacuation is ordered, the order will be sent through the Pacific Alert emergency notification system, will be placed on Pacific's main Web page and will be sent via e-mail.

    For members of the community who feel uncomfortable at their current campus location, Gardemeyer Field (just north of Brookside and Monagan Halls) and the Baseball Field have been inspected and are available as a safe spot to wait until an all-clear is issued.
