Special Event Staffing


The NIU Department of Police and Public Safety can be called upon to maintain order through security services for registered events at NIU. We scale our services to the size of the event. Many factors determine the need for security services and we will work with all organizations in an effort to make events at NIU as safe and secure as possible. A perfect example is when NIU Police Officers and their Student Event Security (SES) control security at the NIU Huskie football games.

At NIU football games, police officers oversee the tailgating and spectators in the stadium, while the Student Event Staff check baggage to ensure compliance with Huskie Stadium and Mid-American Conference (MAC) policies. Other examples of the NIU PD working at registered events include the following: parades and 5K events. We offer parade escort services and crowd control management. These are a couple of examples that we are happy to provide.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you to make your event safe. Contact the NIU Department of Police and Public Safety at 815-753-1212 to make arrangements.
