Safety and Security
We take the safety and security of our campus seriously. Our Public Safety Officers are dedicated to the enforcement of University rules and regulations, authorized to make a citizen's arrest when necessary, and have the ability to detain suspicious subjects for questioning by police. Our officers are armed and meet annual firearm qualification requirements.
As a department, we have also received accreditation by the Idaho Chiefs of Police Association (ICOPA), which recognizes the university's level of law enforcement standards. We are very proud of our officers, many of which:
- Are considered Crime Prevention Specialists, certified through the Idaho Crime Prevention Association (ICPA);
- Have completed the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators’ (IACLEA) Campus Officer Training Program; and
- Have graduated from the Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Academy.
We work collaboratively with our local first responder agencies, as well as city/county/state public safety entities to ensure our campuses remain a safe place for all staff, faculty, and students. Our Dispatch Center is available 24-hours a day, seven days a week. Always remember that we are here for you, so if you need help, just ask.
