The Indiana University Southeast Police department is a fully empowered law enforcement agency. The main objective of this department is to ensure the safety, peace, and tranquility of the academic community. The University Police department's primary jurisdiction is on any real property owned or occupied by the University or on any roads or streets through or adjacent thereto. The department also shares concurrent jurisdiction with, and assists, other local police agencies.
For emergency assistance, dial 2400. The office maintains radio contact with the officer on duty and has the ability to dispatch him/her immediately to the scene of an emergency situation. In the event that an officer cannot be contacted, dial 911. This number will contact the Floyd County Emergency Services, where radio contact is maintained with the IU Southeast officer on duty. The dispatcher must be notified of the exact location within the campus of the emergency.
Copies of the Staff & Faculty Emergency Procedures Handbook are available from the University Police Department. Additional information regarding emergency preparedness and response is on the University Police Department website.
Non-emergency services of the department include enforcing federal and state laws and University policy and around-the-clock checking of building security, administration of facilities key program, enforcing parking and traffic regulations, providing first responder, handling Risk Management issues, and operating the hazardous materials and bio-hazard programs. Additional services include conducting safety inspection of buildings, facilities, and equipment, administering a fire safety program, assisting motorists with problems, providing employee safety and first-aid training programs, and providing other safety and security services that will enhance the operations of the academic and administrative units. Additional information regarding non-emergency services can be found on the University Police Department website.
