Jeanne Clery Campus Security Report and Policy

Campus Crime and Security

Northwestern College is in compliance with Title IV requirements regarding reporting and disclosing crime statistics. Jeanne Clery Campus Security Report and Policy provides campus crime statistics for the last three years which are available on the college website for potential students as well the NC Hub for current students and employees. The College is required to report statistics pertaining to the occurrence of crime on its campuses on an annual basis. To comply with this act, Northwestern College uses information from local law enforcement agencies and NC incident reports. NC sends an email notifying students where to find this information each fall before the first of October.

NC Annual Campus Security Report

Northwestern College believes that individuals have the right to work, study, and learn in a safe and secure campus setting. The College, along with its students and employees share the responsibility of maintaining this atmosphere by taking reasonable precautions, being vigilant, and using a common sense approach to personal safety.

Reporting Crimes and Emergencies. It is each person’s responsibility to report any incident of observed or suspected criminal activity by calling 911 and/or informing College personnel. The College will then determine what actions are necessary. These can include disciplinary action, informing law enforcement agencies, contacting emergency services, notification of the campus community, or other public safety response.

Security of Campus Facilities. The College’s buildings and grounds are monitored by off-duty police officers or security personnel. These officers are on duty at the College during times while classes are offered and students are on campus. All security personnel are available if needed in the event of an emergency.

Access to Campus Facilities. Building access is limited to students wearing a Northwestern College ID, College employees, and authorized visitors. Students who forget their ID must obtain a temporary one. Students are not permitted in buildings or classrooms unless a College employee is present. All visitors must register at the front desk. Solicitors are not permitted at any time.

Law Enforcement. The College’s security staff, to whom reports are to be made, do not have the authority to arrest individuals. Their responsibility and authority is limited to enforcing College policies, regulations, and rules; providing assistance to the person making a report; and contacting law enforcement or emergency agencies whenever appropriate.

Drug and Alcohol Policy.Northwestern College has a strong but fair drug and alcohol awareness policy. In addition to the policy, this page provides links to the drug and alcohol statutes for Illinois, and referral links to rehabilitation facilities in the Chicago metro area.

Public Safety. The Illinois State Police compiles sex offender information. The State Police maintain a website where you can search the sex offender database. To learn the identity of registered sex offenders on or near campus, or anywhere in Illinois, visit www.isp.state.il.us/sor/. It allows you to search by city, county, or zip code.

Northwestern College uses Blackboard Connect for emergency notifications to students, faculty and staff. This system allows for the College to notify individuals as well as send mass messaging to groups in cases of emergency or to relay important information. In the case of emergencies such as a school closing, Northwestern College will notify you by email, phone message, college website, and various news media outlets. The communication type used is based on the requirements of the message to be delivered.

Several members of campus and college administration have access to send messages to groups and the content of the information will be based on the particular situation.

Northwestern College relies on its emergency response plan to determine evacuation methods for each location. The evacuation plan is tested annually either through unannounced or announced drills.
