LSU to improve crisis response plan

Monday, October 8, 2012 - 8:40pm

Three weeks after the bomb threat at LSU that forced a campus-wide evacuation, police are saying the crisis plan wasn't perfect and they're looking to improve it.

Officials originally claimed they were very happy with the evacuation, but police say the plan needs to be smoothed out. They're taking a critical look at things like traffic flow and communication with students.

Cory LaLonde with LSU Police said, "Some of the things that we're looking at include increasing the coordination with other agencies and other entities in the area that can help us get that traffic plan going a little bit better, and geting traffic out of here a little quicker than what happened in the previous incident. "

The University is also looking at monitering problem intersections and designating alternate routes. If something like this happens again they plan on getting officers out to direct traffic sooner.
