UTPD Chief Troy Lane Addresses Security on Campus

Members of our campus community were targeted in threats painted on the Rock.

I am concerned about any hateful speech directed toward individuals or particular groups. Many of you have reached out to us about our response over the weekend. We are committed to being more thoughtful in addressing these incidents moving forward.

We have increased our physical presence in the area around the Rock. We have reviewed security footage from Saturday night and are in contact with local, state, and federal partners to do everything we can within the law to follow up on these matters.

The safety and security of our students, faculty, and staff is my top priority. We encourage the campus community to continue to report these incidents.
