A Safe Campus Benefits Everyone

Western Illinois University's Office of Public Safety provides a safe and secure environment for our campus. We are committed to the prevention of crime; protection of life and property; preservation of the peace; order and safety; enforcement of laws and University policies; quality parking services; and the safeguarding of constitutional guarantees.

With community service as our foundation, we investigate public safety and parking related problems and seek solutions which result in a safe, secure, and as accessible a campus as possible. We attempt to establish such a campus environment by working collaboratively with the community and by treating every individual with respect, fairness and compassion. We strive to maintain public trust and confidence by holding ourselves to the highest level of integrity and professional standard.

Safety and Security is Everyone's Business

We partner with all members of the WIU community to provide a safe environment. Through training, education, and environmental management, we strive to provide a campus that is pleasant, safe, secure, and provides for a high quality of life for all of our members and guests.

Some of our safety programs & strategies include;
