Public Safety Escort Policy

January 30th, 2012 Comments off

What is a safety escort?

If you are concerned about your personal safety, Public Safety can accompany you from campus to a safe destination on campus, near campus or to nearby public transit. If you require transportation for other reasons, please consider calling a taxi service or using public transportation. 

Who can request a safety escort?

IIT students, staff, and faculty.  Please be prepared to show your IIT ID.

Where can a safety escort take me?

On campus, Public Safety can escort you to your car or residence.

Also from the IIT campus, Public Safety can escort you to the following off-campus locations:

  • Lake Meadows
  • Prairie Shores
  • South Commons
  • and other locations at the discretion of Public Safety. 

What about medical escorts?

If you have a minor injury that requires medical attention, Public Safety can provide an emergency escort service to Mercy Hospital. Call 911 if there is a major medical emergency.

How do I request a safety escort?

1)  Contact Public Safety at (312) 808-6300.

2)  You will be asked to provide:

  • Your name
  • Your location
  • Number of persons requesting the escort
  • A call back number
  • Your destination

What else should I know about safety escorts?

  • If you are requesting an escort, please allow for extra time. Emergency and high priority calls may delay fulfilling your request.
  • Public Safety Officers are not permitted to carry or assist with packages or luggage when performing this service.

Public Crime Log. Week Ending January 20, 2012

January 20th, 2012 Comments off

Hello All,

Another good week on campus.

Unfortunately, we had an auto v/s pedestrian accident on State Street.

I want to remind all of you that you should exercise caution when crossing in the crosswalks.

Don’t assume that the drivers will stop or yield.

Please remember to look both ways before crossing the street.

If you recognize a problem area or certain times where traffic is heavy, please contact Public Safety so we can increase our enforcement efforts.

Thank you/
