The College of Idaho Department of Campus Safety is the safety and security division of the college. Officers are assigned to this department after a complete and thorough background investigation. Annual, on-going training is provided. Many officers come from a variety of safety and security backgrounds including law enforcement, fire department, military, and private security. These officers are supervised by the Director of Campus Safety. The officers handle the full range of public safety services and enforce all laws as well as college policies.

The college works closely with the Caldwell Police Department, Canyon County Sheriff and Prosecutor's Victim/Witness Program. Any reports of incidents involving C of I students, on or off campus, are forwarded to the Dean of Student Affairs (or his designee) so that the best interests of students, employees and the community can be served. C of I considers personal safety a priority. Incident reports and safety concerns are reviewed and acted upon according to professional law enforcement standards and College of Idaho policies.

Students are required to comply with the directives of Campus Safety officers and any college official in performance of their assigned duties. Students are required to present valid identification when requested to do so. Campus Safety officers may detain a suspect when there is reasonable suspicion or probable cause to believe that a crime has been committed.

Campus Safety is responsible for the enforcement of policies, rules and regulations set forth by The College of Idaho, and to report criminal violations to the proper authorities. To report crimes or emergencies, members of the college community should call 459-5151 if off campus or x5151 from any campus extension. For life-threatening emergencies, call 9-911 from any campus extension or press the red button on any courtesy phone located throughout the campus.
