IUPD officers want to get to know students and staff before trouble occurs so they can share crime prevention tips, traffic changes and other useful information. They want to build relationships so that students and staff feel comfortable calling for help or other services and so police and the community can work together for campus safety.
IUPD-Bloomington offers a range of safety programs, including bike safety tips for kids, active shooter response and the more intensive 12-hour Rape Aggression Defense course for women. Officers can customize presentations to the safety needs of the groups.
Officers and division leadership can participate in panel discussions about law enforcement topics and attend festivals and other activities where students and staff may want to talk with them in a more informal setting. Contact Sgt. Brian Oliger about safety programs and officer availability for community events.
