12:45 p.m., Jan. 15, 2013--The Toys for Tots campaign coordinated by the Department of Public Safety gathered 11 boxes full of toys to be distributed to needy children in the community.

During November and December, Public Safety hosted a drop-off site for the program, which is run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve. New, unwrapped toys were donated and then distributed as Christmas gifts to needy children.

Spencer to reopen Saturday

Following a Friday afternoon fire, the University of Delaware's Spencer Laboratory will reopen at 8 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 30, with the exception of Suites 131 and 133, which will be closed until further notice.

App for safety

UD now has a smartphone safety app that helps prevent crime and enables police better respond to incidents, making students even safer while at school.

"We had wonderful support from across the UD community," Yvonne Simpson, business administrator in the Department of Public Safety, said. "We're thankful to everyone on campus for this outstanding show of participation." 

The UD toy drive was coordinated by Master Police Officer John Betsch.
