The Campus Security Department is a support unit to the broader mission and goals of the College. We strive to provide the safest, most stable environment possible in which education may be pursued without the fear and presence of crime or violence. We do this by supporting and educating students, employees, and visitors in areas of personal safety and providing assistance in situations of need. The Campus Security Department is built on a foundation of proactive service and crime prevention that reflects and preserves the rights and human dignity of those whom we serve.
Itasca Community College and the Campus Security Department partner with local law enforcement to respond to health, safety and emergency situations. Members of the campus community should call 9-1-1 first in emergency situations and then contact Campus Security for assistance. Our Campus Security officers are hands-off in situations in which their own safety may be compromised. Their role on campus is primarily to provide service and deter criminal activity.
Campus Security officers will provide walking escorts to any campus community member. It is never advisable that you walk alone after dark. Please do not hesitate to request an escort to your vehicle, residence hall, or any other location on campus. You may request an escort by calling the Campus Security duty phone at 218-259-6322 during the hours of 5:00pm to 12:00am, Sunday-Thursday and 6:00pm to 2:00am, Fridays and Saturdays. Escorts are available during fall and spring semesters only.
ICC encourages all students and College community members to be fully aware of the safety issues on and around campus and to take action to prevent and to report illegal and inappropriate activities. Personal awareness and applying personal safety practices are the foundation of a safe community.
Each year ICC creates and publishes an annual Campus Compliance and Security Report offering three years of campus crime statistics. The Crime Awareness and Campus Security Act requires that this report include information about particular types of crimes that occur in and around ICC campus properties. This report further includes policy statements, program descriptions and procedures to follow in response to criminal activities.
