WVU joins national safety campaign
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — West Virginia University is joining a safety campaign adopted by the federal Department of Homeland Security in the wake of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
The Morgantown school says it’s the first organization in the state to join the “If you see something, say something” campaign. The campaign is launching ahead of WVU’s first home football game Saturday.
The campaign featuring the university police department’s bomb-sniffing dogs will include posters and public announcements around campus. It will also be promoted on various social media outlets.
The university’s campaign urges anyone who “sees something” suspicious to “say something” by calling a toll-free line monitored by the West Virginia Intelligence Fusion Center.
Officials say the campaign is one more tool to help law enforcement ensure the safety of everyone on campus.
