The University of Texas at Tyler Police Department and the Tyler Police Department, in conjunction with the UT Tyler Office of Emergency Management, will be conducting a full-scale emergency exercise on Monday, Dec. 16, 2013, on the UT Tyler campus.

The exercise, which will run from 9 a.m. - 12 p.m., is designed to test the campus response to a potential armed intruder on campus. Persons on or around the campus may notice an increased police presence in conjunction with this exercise during the morning hours. Signs will be posted alerting people around campus to the exercise in progress.

A reminder email which will contain addition information, including safety protocols, will be sent to the campus community this Friday and also on Monday morning prior to the beginning of the exercise.
