See Something, Say Something

People who might be violent usually have other types of problems long before they begin to act out in violent ways. It’s important that members of the university community are vigilant for early warning signs and contact the appropriate campus office when they see suspicious behavior in others. Who you contact depends on the behavior observed in another person and the perceived level of threat.

When it appears an individual poses an imminent and serious danger to the safety of others, University Police should be contacted immediately at 716-645-2222. University Police also should be called when there are concerns about a non-UB community member on campus.
