Let’s stay safe… Together!

The Parkland College Police Department will, with all due diligence, preserve the safety to all patrons of the college.

We seek to ensure a safe and secure campus environment for the more than 10,000 students, faculty, staff, and visitors. We will do everything possible to ensure your safety, by providing a visible presence and deterrent to disruptions. We strive towards this goal through our belief in and execution of 10 core principles that have been affirmed by the Illinois Association of Chiefs of Police and the Illinois NAACP.

The officers and staff of the campus police stand ready, committed and willing to serve you and the college community 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Let’s stay safe… Together!
