Campus Safety and Security

We strive to make Indiana Tech a safe, secure, and welcoming environment for learning and working. The Department of Safety & Security works to promote safe habits, crime prevention, and security awareness through dedication to protecting life and property. We engage in training and preparation throughout the year by conducting drills and seminars across the university community.

Safety & Security provides campus protection including patrols, CPR/AED/First Aid, incident response, welfare checks, access control, and emergency management. Security officers are equipped with two-way communication between staff and have the ability to immediately contact emergency services such as police, fire, and EMS. Safety & Security is present 24 hours a day, everyday of the year across campus. Our central office can be found in the Andorfer Commons main hall, office 144. Security officers are also equipped and trained to activate the Blackboard Connect Emergency Notification System to alert students and employees of situations on campus.

Additionally, if an officer is not immediately present, there are yellow poles located across the campus with red emergency buttons (Code Blue Stations). Pressing the red button will put the caller in touch with the central office, which can dispatch officers to the location and begin contacting local emergency services as needed.

The department consists of a dedicated team of security officers, contracted police, and the Director of Safety & Security.

Contacting Security

All students, employees, and guests  at the main campus should promptly report criminal incidents, accidents, and other emergencies to  Indiana Tech Safety & Security or the Fort Wayne Police Department. Students, employees, and guests of regional campuses should report concerns to the local staff or 911. All crimes that occur on or near the campus should be reported to Safety & Security.
