Statement on Hoax Emails

Earlier today UMPD was notified by UMD Division of IT that departments across campus received bomb threat emails. We are aware that these emails are hoaxes. These emails are the same that have been sent all over the country today to schools and cities. An investigation into these emails is underway. We encourage anyone if they see suspicious activity to report it to police immediately.
