UPDATE to Campus Safety Notification Message

UPDATE to Campus Safety Notification Message

Dear Campus Community,

 

I am writing this evening to provide an update to the message I sent earlier today regarding the threat made against our officers at the University of Maryland Police Department.

 

Mr. Sulkowski has been released on his own recognizance from the Department of Corrections and will have an upcoming trial in Prince George’s County, Maryland.

 

This is a reminder that Mr. Sulkowski has been issued a denial of access to all University of Maryland, College Park buildings and grounds. If you see Mr. Sulkowski on our campus, please call UMPD at 301-405-3333, #3333 from your cell phone, or 911 immediately.

 

Our Officers will continue to patrol the campus community with their rear red and blue lights on for increased visibility. We have over 400 cameras on and off campus that our Security Operation Center monitors 24/7, 365 days a year. We have over 300 blue light phones on our campus - by hitting the red emergency button, the caller will be put in direct contact with a UMPD Dispatcher.

 

As always, we offer walking safety escorts that can be requested at any time of the day. An Officer or a member of our Student Police Auxiliary unit will meet you at your current location and walk with to your destination. Again, this service is available 24/7, 365 days a year, and is free. To request a walking escort, call 301-405-3555.

 

We encourage members of our UMD community to download the UMD Guardian Safety App . This can serve as a virtual walking escort service, automatically contacting UMPD if you do not arrive at your expected destination. Additionally, by downloading the UMD Guardian app, you can text a tip to UMPD and have the ability to include a photo.

 

Lastly, if you notice an individual that is behaving in a manner that is unsettling, please call the University of Maryland Police Department (UMPD) right away so an investigation can begin. We are here as a resource for keeping our community safe. If You See or Hear Something, Say Something. Together, we can all keep our community safe

Campus Safety Notification Message

Campus Safety Notification Message

Dear Campus Community,

 

I am writing today to inform you of a safety threat that was made to our community, for which a suspect is now in custody.

 

On February 23, 2018, at approximately 11:30 a.m., the University of Maryland Police Department (UMPD), Criminal Investigations Unit, received a complaint regarding concerning behavior from an individual. The reporting person told police that this individual made statements that he was applying for firearms and waiting for the background check. The individual continued to state he had access to firearms and he was going to shoot UMPD police officers.

 

Due to the statements made by the individual, our Criminal Investigations Unit applied for and obtained an arrest warrant for Ryan Matthew Sulkowski, 21-year-old male, from Baltimore Maryland, for making the threat of assault against UMPD officers.

 

In the early morning hours of February 25, 2018, the Baltimore County Police Department took Ryan Matthew Sulkowski into custody and was charged with the following:

 

One count of CR 3-1001 Threat of Mass Violence – A person who violates this section is guilty of the misdemeanor of making a threat of mass violence and on conviction is subject to imprisonment not exceeding 10 years or a fine not exceeding $10,000 or both.

 

One count of ED 26-101 School: Disturb Operation - Any person who violates any provision of this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to a fine not exceeding $2,500, imprisonment not exceeding 6 months or both.

 

Currently, Mr. Sulkowski is in custody and is being held on a no bond status.

 

Based upon this information, the University of Maryland Police Department deployed resources and took several precautionary safety measures.

 

We commend the reporting person in this case who came forward and reported to police. As a reminder, If You See or Hear Something, Say Something. If you notice an individual that is behaving in a manner that is unsettling, please call the University of Maryland Police Department (UMPD) right away so an investigation can begin.
