Message from the Public Safety Department

Welcome to Illinois Institute of Technology's Public Safety Department website. We hope you will find the information contained here to be useful.

Reporting directly to the Vice President for Facilities and Public Safety, the Public Safety Department supports the university's educational goals by maintaining a secure environment in which to explore diverse social, cultural and academic ideas and to pursue knowledge. In addition to discharging its specific duties and responsibilities, the Public Safety Department maintains continuous and harmonious relationships with other law enforcement agencies and community leaders. Through a cooperative relationship with local law enforcement, IIT contributes to a community-wide effort to fight criminal activity. The end result is a safe and secure environment in which to live, work and study throughout all IIT campuses.

Developing a safe and secure environment in an academic institution is a partnership. The Public Safety Department is assigned the primary responsibility of identifying those programs, methods, and tactics necessary; while every member of the community is encouraged to learn and demonstrate personal security habits and to immediately report crimes or suspicious activity.
