Huskie Patrol - NIU - Department of Police and Public Safety

Huskie Patrol

The Huskie Patrol works weeknights from 8 p.m. to 4 a.m. and is operated by student employees organized into teams and zones. Members are supplied for duty with radios carrying both their own service channel and the University Police channel for instant communication. The members are also distinctly attired as they make their rounds. The Huskie Patrol provides up to thirty sets of eyes for the Department of Public Safety.

In the last few years, attempts at criminal activity have been thwarted and perpetrators have been caught because of the vigilant watch of these dedicated student employees, whose mission is to observe and to report. The NIU Department of Public Safety instituted the Huskie Patrol in 1996.
