Dear Rider Community,
Earlier today, Rider University’s Public Safety Office received an anonymous phone call threatening gun violence on campus. An immediate shelter in place order was issued via our emergency communication system called Rider Alert.
After an immediate, thorough investigation by Lawrence Township Police and Rider Public Safety, it was determined that there was no threat to campus and the shelter in place order was canceled.
We are currently gathering more information to share with our community as soon as possible. We know these situations are scary, and we appreciate everyone’s cooperation. We will be in touch via email again later today.
