What is a Suspicious Package?

A suspicious package may have the following characteristics:

  • Abnormal sounds
  • Poorly handwritten or typed addresses
  • Misspelling of common words

Steps to Follow 

  • DO NOT CHANGE OR TOUCH ANYTHING, including using the phone, turning lights, computers, etc. on/off. Leave everything as it is.
  • Verbally notify others in close proximity that they should evacuate.
  • Under no circumstances should students, staff, or faculty touch a suspected bomb.
  • Do not use your cellphone (cellphones can serve as a radio trigger for some homemade bombs)
  • If in a room, evacuate the room and prevent others from entering.
  • Once evacuated to more than 500 feet away, contact Capital University Department of Public Safety.
