ISU Public Safety
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.
ISU Public Safety Officers are on duty 24 hours a day, seven
days a week. They are responsible for the enforcement of
university rules and regulations, and are authorized to make
citizen's arrests when necessary or at the direction of a
police officer and to detain subjects for the police. The ISU
campus is within the jurisdiction of the Pocatello Police
Department and is patrolled regularly by officers of that
department. County and state law enforcement personnel
periodically patrol the public streets on campus, and campus
officers work closely with all other law enforcement agencies.
To keep officers updated on current campus safety awareness
issues, officers are members of the Mountainwest Campus Law
Enforcement Association and attend regular training workshops,
inservice training and seminars.
