From The Journal News:

“Local college students said Tuesday that they feel safe on and around their campuses during the off-season, provided they take simple safety precautions.”

“Security chiefs at several local colleges said that if anything, patrols are more obvious on campus in the summer to discourage vandals attracted by empty dorms and classrooms.”

“Pace University’s director of security, Vincent Beatty, concurred. He said the school normally drops to 50 to 100 students on campus in the summer, but, “We do not change anything.”

University heightens security level in NYC

July 7, 2005

Early this morning, in response to the terrorist attacks in London, the University heightened its level of security at our 1 Pace Plaza campus in lower Manhattan. This heightened level of security will remain in place until further notice.

Earlier today, the federal government raised the security alert level to orange on mass transit systems across the country, including here in New York City. Please know, however, that University officials are in communication with city, state and federal officials who report no direct threats to New York City or the tri-state area.

I would like to join city and state officials in encouraging everybody to go about their business in a normal fashion, but to be extra vigilant of their surroundings. If you see something suspicious or out of the ordinary, please do not hesitate to report it to Pace Security at 212-346-1800 in New York City, 914-773-3400 in Pleasantville, 914-923-2700 in Briarcliff or 914-422-4300 in White Plains.

Please join me in extending the thoughts and prayers of the entire Pace University community to the people of London, the victims of the attacks, and their families and friends.

Thank you.

David A. Caputo
President
