The College of DuPage Police Department is a professional 24-hour law enforcement agency. Whether it is providing emergency first aid, responding to a criminal act or providing escort service to your vehicle or class, the department is always ready to help you.
The COD police serve to create a safe environment for learning. We do so by partnering with our community to support administrative policies and the law. We seek to intervene in events at a level that allows for learning when possible, but that removes threats from the community when required.
We seek to gain voluntary compliance with policy and law by working with the community to promote a shared vision of what an appropriate learning environment should be, and the benefits of maintaining such an environment. We value feedback, especially when supported by fact.
The COD police work with peers in law enforcement throughout the area, to share information and support enforcement and service actions. This interaction strengthens relationships required for joint work in emergency situations.
