A recording of the Campus Safety Forum held Nov. 12 can be viewed on the Fresno State YouTube channel. Fresno State President Joseph I. Castro and campus administrators, including Fresno State Police Chief David Huerta, addressed over 200 students, faculty, staff and alumni concerning the Nov. 2 social media threat to the University. Within two hours, a suspect was identified and apprehended. The 90-minute forum, which was broadcast live via the Fresno State Periscope account, included a discussion on current safety procedures and resources. “I believe everyone agrees that the Fresno State Police Department (FSPD) was heroic in quickly identifying and arresting a suspect, and I offer my personal thanks to the officers and FSPD staff for a job well done,” Castro said. “I also agree with the sentiments expressed today on the need to provide communications to campus earlier, clearer and more often in stressful situations. The cabinet and I have already identified this among the next steps to undertake as we refine our emergency procedures.” Students, faculty and staff received updates on Fresno State social media and text message updates via Bulldog Alert the day of the threat. They were reminded to add or update their mobile phone number in their MyFresnoState portals (under personal information) to register for the emergency alert system.
