General Threats

If you have received any form of threat to your own safety or that of any other employee of the company you should:

If threat is received by telephone:

  1. Write down, what was said, in detail, as soon as possible.
  2. Write a description of the person(s) making the threat (sex, approx. age, attitude, any background noises). 
  3. Is the caller's voice familiar?
  4. If you do not feel you are in immediate danger contact the Campus Police non-emergency number at 416-287-7398.
  5. If you feel you are in immediate danger, contact the Campus Police Emergency number at 416-297-7333 or call 911 and advise the police accordingly. After contacting the police, advise corporate security as soon as possible.


Every threat, however received, must be assessed by someone other than those receiving the threat.  Threats rarely happen in isolation and security needs to know of even the vaguest of threats to people or property.  Threats should always be reported!
