The University Police Department tested a new campus notification system on Wednesday, as university police officials look into new ways of alerting the campus in times of crisis.
â€œWe feel comfortable with what we have to notify the campus, but we are always looking into new technology,â€ said Amy Armstrong, the University Police Departmentâ€™s Public Information Officer.
The demonstration took place on Barstow Avenue in front of the University Police station and was given by Cooper Notification.
Chelsea Provchy, a sophomore physical therapy student, said, â€œI heard the sound when I was getting out of my car.â€ She was parked in Lot E, south of the Henry Madden Library.
The university police have not committed to purchasing the new system yet.
