Motorist Assistance


You’ve locked your keys in your car. You just got out of class and realize your battery is dead. What do you do? Call 815-753-1212 and we will be glad to come to your assistance.

The Motorist Assistance Program is just one more way the NIU Department of Police and Public Safety is of service. We are happy to help all community members to unlock your car door or provide a jump for your battery on the DeKalb campus. As part of our overall plan to help, we also offer assistance to students, staff, and faculty in the area surrounding the DeKalb campus.

If we are unable to open your vehicle or get your car started, we will help you contact a motor club or other service provider to get you rolling again.
