The Triton College Police Department is responsible for identifying programs, methods and approaches to assist the institution towards achieving a safe and secure campus. The Triton College Police Department provides law enforcement services to the college. Police officers are duly sworn and commissioned under the provisions of the Illinois Compiled Statutes and enforce all state and local laws. The department, a 24-hour public service law enforcement agency, is charged with protecting life and property, preventing crime, controlling traffic/parking, providing general security services, responding to alarms, and investigating crimes.
Integral service functions include, but are not limited to, personal escorts, emergency crisis notifications, money escorts, language translation services, TDD for the hearing and speech impaired, and jump start/lockout services.
The department endeavors to preserve an environment where diverse social, cultural, and academic values are allowed to develop and prosper. All members of the department are expected to actively participate in the achievement of these goals and in the service to the college. It is only through our collective efforts that our mission will be accomplished.
MAJOR GOALS 2011-2012
Replace and upgrade outdated pieces of the Closed Circuit Television System (CCTV) which includes cameras throughout campus and a more efficient solution to the Triton College Police Department radio room’s large outdated monitor unit.
Purchase two new Police vehicle’s to replace two current vehicles within the fleet. This will continue the rotation of the vehicle’s during normal shift use which will minimize the wear and tear to the fleet.
Purchase a golf cart type of vehicle to cut down on vehicle emissions as well as to create a more cost effective and environmentally friendly patrol program. This will also increase public relations with the Triton community.
Convert a vehicle that is currently within Triton College’s fleet into an Incident Command vehicle for use during an on campus crisis or large scale emergency situation.
Continue the bicycle patrol program and other means of green transportation to reduce motor vehicle wear and tear, to do our part and further benefit the environment, to promote greater community interaction and to enhance campus safety and security.
