    UO Alert Law Enforcement Activity: All Clear

    September 25th, 2018


    The law enforcement activity by Eugene Police in the area of 14th/15th avenues and Mill/High streets is all clear. Residents can resume normal activity.

    Eugene Police took a suspect into custody the evening of September 25 in the area. The 17-year old was a suspect in a shooting earlier in the day on Bailey Lane in northeast Eugene.

    Eugene Police used SWAT and crisis negotiation teams to make contact with the suspect in the neighborhood just south of downtown Eugene and several blocks west of campus. Eugene Police also used a reverse 911 call to alert local residents to the police activity, and the University of Oregon issued a UO Alert to the campus community warning people to stay away from the affected area.

    This is a Eugene Police investigation and the department is sharing information as available with local media. The UO will not have further information on the situation.

    UOPD issues all clear after suspicious package reported in PLC

    May 22nd, 2018

    The University of Oregon Police Department has issued the “all clear” for Prince Lucien Campbell Hall, after a faculty member reported a suspicious package had been received on May 22.

    UOPD first cleared the faculty member’s department, housed on a lower level of the building. In coordination with the Eugene Police Department’s bomb squad, other sections of the building were also evacuated as a precaution.

    A short time later, the suspicious package was deemed harmless and the “all clear” was given.

    “While ultimately not an actual threat, the faculty member did the right thing in contacting police,” said Mathew Carmichael, chief of police. “The package had suspicious markings and was sent without request from somewhere in the mid-west, adding to the faculty member’s concern. Community members reporting these types of incidents is imperative to keeping our campus safe. See something, say something.”

    PLC and the surrounding area were returned to normal operations by 5:15 p.m.

    UOAlert!: All clear

    May 22nd, 2018


    May 22, 2018 – 5:11 pm

    UOAlert: All clear has been issued. PLC has been reopened. A summary of the situation will be posted on the alerts blog shortly. https://alerts.uoregon.edu/
