Surviving an Active Shooter Incident

Our Mission

Here at Idaho State University, the safety and security of our students, faculty and staff - as well as the university's campus in general - is our mission. The Department seeks to promote mutual cooperation and conflict resolution by establishing a positive social atmosphere where effective learning can take place. The professionals in the Department of Public Safety cooperate with several other individuals and organizations on and around campus to accomplish that mission.

Below is our new video showing some of Public Safety's services. Check it out!

In General

ISU Public Safety Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Public Safety officers are Idaho Peace Officer Standard & Training (POST) certified, Crime Prevention Specialists certified through the Idaho Crime Prevention Association (ICPA) and have completed the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators Campus Officer Training program. Officers are also armed and meet annual firearm qualification requirements. All officers receive updated training necessary for quality job performance. They are responsible for the enforcement of university rules and regulations, and are authorized to make citizen's arrests when necessary and to detain suspicious subjects for questioning by the police. The ISU campuses are patrolled regularly by city, county and state law enforcement personnel, and campus officers work closely with all law enforcement agencies. ISU Public Safety has also received accreditation by the Idaho Chiefs of Police Association (ICOPA), which recognizes the University's level of law enforcement standards.
