HELP US PROTECT YOU AND CAMPUS!
Valley City State University strives to offer a safe environment for students, faculty, staff, and visitors.
There are employees working 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
During the night and evening hours, there is a night watchman (for
building security), Power House employees and evening custodians, all on
campus, who can assist with any incidents that may occur outside the
normal work day. You can contact the Power House at 701-845-7708, at any
time, for assistance.
Along with routine patrol duties and
traffic enforcement, other services include conducting investigations,
responding to emergencies and alarms, and securing rooms and buildings.
Routine facility and landscaping assessments are made to minimize
hazardous conditions. Exterior lighting, doors, and shrubbery are
checked for unsafe conditions and reported to the maintenance
department, where repairs are given top priority.
The University's security personnel are not sworn police officers,
however the University maintains good working relations with local and
state law enforcement agencies. The Valley City Police Department
canvasses the campus numerous times during the day and night. If there
is an emergency, dial 9-911. VCSU's phone system has the capability to
allow the police department to see what the phone number, building, and
room where 911 was dialed. Typically, the Valley City Police
Department's response time to the campus is around five minutes or less.
