LA JOLLA, Calif. (KGTV) - University of California San Diego Police are investigating threats of violence to the campus during finals week.

The generalized, non-specific threats were written on three women’s bathroom doors in Geisel Library, officials said.

Police were notified about the threats Sunday night and Monday afternoon, according to University Police Chief David S. Rose.

“Our University takes every threat of violence extremely seriously and the UC San Diego Police Department has responded and is investigating,” Rose said.

Officers interviewed potential witnesses and are reviewing video to identity the person or persons responsible for the postings.

UC San Diego officials consulted with police, the Behavioral Threat Team, local and federal law enforcement, and a threat assessment expert before deciding to continue with its regular finals week schedule, Rose said.

More police will be present on campus, according to Rose.

Anyone with information is asked to call UC San Diego Police at 858-534-4357 or email
