Campus Police Offices

Crime Reporting

On ICC campuses, Campus Police are the closest emergency responders and the 911 liaison with other emergency services agencies. The Campus Police Department strongly encourages all staff, students, and visitors of Illinois Central College to report all crimes and to encourage victims or witnesses of crime to voluntarily report the information to Campus Police. At the request of the reporting victim or witness, Campus Police will make every effort to maintain their confidentiality with respect to the law and College policies.

If you discover a crime scene, do not touch anything. If you are a witness to a crime in progress, do not approach or attempt to apprehend the persons involved. Take only actions necessary for self-defense. In both situations, get to a safe place and call Campus Police immediately. Stay on the line with the dispatcher and if in a position of safety, remain where you are until help arrives.

Provide as much information as you can, including:

  • Type of crime or criminal behavior
  • Location
  • Description of persons (height, weight, sex, clothing) and any weapons involved
  • Direction of anyone’s travel away from the scene
  • Vehicle description (color, make, model, license plate number)

Emergency Call Box Locations

Located outdoors and marked with a blue light, these call boxes provide a direct link to the Campus Police emergency line and officers will respond to the activation of these emergency boxes.

East Peoria Campus: Near the bridge approach between Lots A and B, by Lot C, E, G, CC, next to the sidewalk near College Circle, and in parking lots at Campus Housing

Peoria Campus: Lots 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7

Call boxes/phones are also located in all elevators and at main exterior door locations on all four campuses. Wall phones are available on all campuses and are generally located in public access areas and hallways.

Mobile Safety App

To enhance the personal safety of the ICC community, the Illinois Central College Police Department is now offering “ICC Guardian,” a free mobile safety app for smartphones. The Guardian app is a direct connection to the ICC Campus Police Department emergency phone line. Guardian also gives users the ability to text with Campus Police. Crime tips or other information can be submitted (anonymously, if desired) and photos can be attached to the text. A Campus Police dispatcher will respond to all incoming text messages.

Online Reporting

An online reporting form is available. A person has the option to report anonymously using this form. It may be used to report incidents of sexual violence, dating or domestic violence, or stalking that involve any member of the ICC campus community.

Trapped in an Elevator

Do not try to exit the elevator car through the roof or by forcing the doors. To summon help, use the elevator’s emergency phone, call (309) 694-5111 from a cellular phone, turn on the emergency alarm, or bang on the doors and shout for assistance. Wait for trained personnel to assist you from the elevator.

Wild Animals

If a wild animal (such as a bat or raccoon) is inside a building, try to safely isolate it in a room by closing doors behind you and keeping people away. Only trained animal technicians should handle animals. Animals wandering loose on campus should be immediately reported to Campus Police.

Electrical/Plumbing Emergency

Avoid touching equipment that is smoking, sparking, or giving off electrical shocks.
Never enter areas where there is submerged electrical equipment. Vacate the area immediately. Cease using all electrical equipment and call Campus Police at (309) 694-5111 when in a position of safety.
