Current NIU Safety Notifications

NIU Police and Public Safety provides information on crimes that have recently occurred in the campus area so that you may take the appropriate precautions. An NIU Safety Notification is issued in accordance with a federal law requiring colleges and universities to disclose information about crime in the vicinity of campus to both aid in the prevention of similar crimes and to assist in the identification of offenders.

NIU Safety Notifications are based on information that has been reported to Northern Illinois University Police and Public Safety. The reported information may not have been investigated or confirmed at the time the Safety Notification was issued. Safety Notifications may be delivered by NIU e-mail, NIU Safe app, social media, text and web when an incident occurs that should be brought to the immediate attention of the University community. Physical descriptions of a suspect, including race, are included in NIU Safety Notifications only when they provide several details that might help distinguish the suspect's appearance from the general population.

Notices will be published to this webpage the next business day. Please see the NIU PD Facebook page for the latest notifications.
