Bomb ThreatsBomb threats are rare at Abraham Baldwin College, but they do occur. As the receiver of a bomb threat, you can provide the most information to ABAC Police by obtaining as much information as possible from the caller. Things to ask include:
Concentrate on the caller’s voice (race, sex, age, accent, nervousness, etc.) And any background noises you may hear (indoors, outdoors, music, television, voices, laughing, etc.) This information will assist in identifying the caller. Call the ABAC Police Department immediately by dialing 911. Do not panic! The ABAC Police Department will assist in searching the area. The assistance of police personnel may be requested. The daily users of the office areas are better qualified to determine what is “out of place” or unusual.
The ABAC Police Department will notify other agencies as needed. The ABAC Police and the building supervisor will work together to determine if evacuation of the building is required. The time difference between the received bomb threat call and the alleged time of explosion will be a factor in making any decision to evacuate the building. Most bomb threats are made to disrupt classes, examination, or office routines. The eventuality of an actual bomb being places is extremely rare. However, the ABAC Police department takes every threat seriously and will investigate the bomb threat thoroughly.
