Safety, Security & Transportation

Safety, Security & Transportation

Our 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 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.

Traffic Changes

Notification: Closure of Jefferson Street bridge from July 6 through November.

Due to the location of our downtown Joliet campus buildings– the Rialto and Robert Plaster Free Enterprise Center– the Safety, Security and Transportation Department wanted to make the campus community aware of the upcoming traffic changes in downtown Joliet.

Beginning Monday, July 6, 2015 through November 2015, the Jefferson Street bridge will be closed to through traffic due to repairs. Though this is the easiest route from USF’s main campus to the downtown campus location, motorists are encouraged to seek alternate routes and allow for extra time when traveling in and out of this area.

For additional information, contact the Department of Public Works at 815-724-4200.
