Police Modify Emergency Alert System

After four shelter-in-place warnings sounded during fall semester, UC officials made changes to its opt-in system to alert students about crime.Previously, students signed up for text message alerts through the OneStop website, but UC’s emergency text message alert system will be changed to an opt-out service for students, rather than an opt-in service.Nixle — a company with the technological capability to send a substantial amount of alerts at one time — powers the emergency text message service.
