Our Mission

Here at Idaho State University, the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff - as well as the university's campus in general - is our mission. The Department seeks to promote mutual cooperation and conflict resolution by establishing a positive social atmosphere where effective learning can take place. The professionals in the Department of Public Safety cooperate with several other individuals and organizations on and around campus to accomplish that mission.

In General

ISU Public Safety Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, seven days a week. They are responsible for the enforcement of university rules and regulations, and are authorized to make citizen's arrests when necessary or at the direction of a police officer and to detain subjects for the police. The ISU campus is within the jurisdiction of the Pocatello Police Department and is patrolled regularly by officers of that department. County and state law enforcement personnel periodically patrol the public streets on campus, and campus officers work closely with all other law enforcement agencies. To keep officers updated on current campus safety awareness issues, officers are members of the Mountainwest Campus Law Enforcement Association and attend regular training workshops, inservice training and seminars.
