Emergency Information

To Report Any Police, Fire, or Medical Emergency, Dial 911

Callers Should:

  • DIAL 911. Please note: Cellular 911 calls may not always be routed to the NIU Police due to cellular tower 911 configurations.
  • Stay on the line with the dispatcher.
  • Provide the address of the building involved and your exact location. This is especially critical if you are calling from a cell phone.
  • Provide a thorough description of the incident and individuals involved such as clothing, height, weight and direction of travel to ensure proper resources are dispatched.
