Safety & Security

SecurityOur trained Security Officers are a friendly, professional and visible presence 24 hours a day, seven days a week. USF officers are an unarmed informational force and have jurisdiction in all areas of campus. They are in direct communication with the Joliet Police Department and he Joliet Fire Department and call upon their assistance when needed. The department is dedicated to maintaining a safe and secure learning, teaching and working environment at the University of St. Francis.

No matter how effective the university’s security procedures may be the primary responsibility for safety and security falls upon each and every one of us. No police force or set of rules and regulations can be effective unless the individual exercises reasonable caution and awareness. Safety and security is everyone’s responsibility.
