Police Panic Button Added to Latest Computer Refresh
Those with newly refreshed desktop computers may have noticed a new shortcut: a red button with the words “PANIC, SEND POLICE” written in all caps.
This panic button is a direct line to UM police and should only be used in case of a life-threatening emergency. Do not “test” this button.
To use it, double-click the button and expect a police response to be quick with appropriate concern.
This will only appear on recently refreshed desktop computers. If your icon is blank or missing, please email Adam Boothe.
