The FBI has notified all Philadelphia area colleges and universities about a recent social media posting threatening violence at an unspecified Philadelphia area college or university on Monday, October 5 at 2 p.m. EST. Since the shooting last week at a community college in Oregon, the FBI has seen similar social media postings throughout the country. Delaware County Community College takes campus safety very seriously and in response to this threat the College has notified the local police departments presiding over all of the College's locations and is working in conjunction with them to enhance security. The College’s Office of Safety & Security will also increase security patrols on Monday and monitor the situation closely. We ask that you remain aware of your surroundings and report any suspicious activity or behaviors to Security at 610-359-5303.
