The Indiana University Police Department – Northwest is a full-service law enforcement agency operating 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. We serve and protect the entire campus community, including our students, faculty, staff, visitors, and neighbors.

IUPD-Northwest services include:

  • Emergency response
  • Campus patrol, including bike patrol
  • Security escort

Our authority

Indiana law gives accredited universities such as IU the authority to appoint police officers (IC 21-39-4). IUPD is a university-wide police department made up of divisions located on each campus. We have primary jurisdiction on any university-owned property, as well as streets that pass through or around the property.

We work closely with local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies and have direct access to national and state law enforcement computer networks such as the National Crime Information Center and the Indiana Data and Communications System.
