Police Department

Effective today, Monday, Sept. 12, 2011, the Indiana University Northwest Police Department has relocated its headquarters to the Moraine Student Center. The campus police have moved from their former space in Tamarack Hall, which was the last unit still located within that campus building. 

Tamarack Hall sustained significant damage during the 2008 campus flood and, with the departure of campus security operations, its use is being entirely discontinued. 

The new Moraine facility will provide the police with a high-quality workspace, including a dispatch center equipped with the latest technology. Additional updates include a dedicated generator, which will provide a crucial power source backup for law enforcement if campus power goes down. 

IU Northwest students, faculty, staff and visitors are reminded that if they see any suspicious activities on or around campus, they should contact the Campus Police immediately at (219) 980-6501. Campus community members are also reminded always to secure personal property, lock cars and offices and to never leave valuable personal items unattended. 

Police escorts are available to campus community members. Individuals are encouraged to contact the IUPD for an escort whenever walking to their vehicles alone in the evenings. Callers should allow five to 10 minutes for an officer to arrive and provide the escort. 

Emergency phones are located throughout the campus and may be used to connect directly with the campus police. As another safety measure, all students, faculty and staff are advised to program the IUPD number into their cell phones for quick access.
