Providing a safe and secure campus for students, faculty and staff is a top priority at NKU! As a state-accredited police department, NKU’s Department of Public Safety (DPS) demonstrates that they meet commonly accepted professional standards for efficient and effective operations while taking a proactive approach in providing protection, service and education to the campus community along with a community policing philosophy. With its staff of state-certified and trained police officers, DPS provides around-the-clock protection for all campus areas including parking lots/garages and residential areas. Other safety features include a campus-wide emergency notification system that communicates with the campus community via text, voice and email messaging and/or interior/exterior warning speakers in the event of an emergency, weather alert of school closing; a residential card access security system to enter residence halls; a camera system on entrances/exits to the residential buildings; seventeen emergency call box phones, easily recognized by the blue light towering above each positioned throughout the campus; and a 24-hour police escort service. On-going campus safety and crime prevention presentations are discussed during orientation and regular residential village forums such as the Rape Aggression Defense System, a comprehensive course for women and a program of realistic, self defense tactics and techniques which begins with awareness, prevention, risk reduction and avoidance while progressing on to the basics of hands-on defense training; and the Citizens' Police Academy that is an educational program designed to give the public a working knowledge of NKU’s police department’s personnel and policies.
