Mission

The mission of the Prairie State College (PSC) Police and Campus Safety Department is to provide a safe and secure environment on our properties. 

PSC is a richly diverse community college dedicated to student-centered instruction that fosters success in adult, transfer, and workforce education. PSC is concerned about the safety and well-being of all staff, faculty, students, and visitors. Since crime has the potential to occur on any college campus, we advocate that the members of our college community exert personal responsibility in an effort to keep themselves aware of their surroundings.

The PSC Police and Campus Safety Department is dedicated to the prevention of crime, fire, and injuries. Crime prevention and awareness information is made available to educate our college community so that we may all act proactively in the prevention of campus crime.

The PSC Police and Campus Department shall perform all duties in a professional manner with pride, integrity, and compassion and will serve all without prejudice and uphold the Constitutional Rights of people we encounter, as well as enforcing all laws of the State of Illinois and the United States of America.
