Maximum 12 participants

University Police has received several inquiries regarding religious missionary-type recruiters approaching students on-campus. Unsubstantiated social media posts often allege that the activity is related to human trafficking. These incidents have been vetted by University Police, as well as other law enforcement agencies in the area, and there are currently no credible links to any criminal activity. University Police will continue to monitor this situation. If you’re approached by someone you don’t know, do not give them any personal information or accompany them to their vehicle or away from a public place. Immediately call University Police at (859) 572-7777 if you feel unsafe. As always, our community is reminded to be vigilant in reporting crimes and suspicious activity and to utilize our safety escort program if you’re feeling unsafe.

Night Shift is rough on the body!

We thank all 911 dispatchers for being an emergency lifeline until first responders can arrive.

Just FYI for our commuters.

Mental health is just as important as physical health. University Police is always there to listen and help anyone in need.

Thank you to all the 911 dispatchers out there, we couldn't do it without you.

This week is National Public Safety Telecommunicators Week. Our NKU 911 Dispatchers are the lifeline for our officers & community, and we would like to thank them for their dedication to keeping our community and our officers safe. Throughout the week we will be posting interesting facts to give some insight into their world.

Looking forward to a good show.

NKU Police Internship Opportunity The Northern Kentucky University Police Department endeavors to engage our stakeholders in a variety of manners and to help develop and support the university and its student’s educational goals. One way to do so is the implementation of an internship program. Our objective is to provide a hands-on learning experience to enhance the student’s understanding of law enforcement responsibilities, duties and techniques, as well as the criminal justice system process. Participants will engage in work impacting the department’s provision of public safety services. This includes working independently, as appropriate, as well as under the direct supervision sworn and non-sworn personnel in the discharge of their official duties. The 16 week program will provide participants a strong background in campus policing as well as providing the opportunity to build connections with the law enforcement community. We are extending the application due date to April 15, 2018 for the 2018 Fall Semester Internship. The program and application link is below. Good Luck! Spread the word!!!

Northern Kentucky University Police Department’s K9 Arrit has received body armor Northern Kentucky University Police Department’s K9 Arrit has received a bullet and stab protective vest thanks to a charitable donation from non-profit organization Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. The vest was sponsored by Shirley Juan of Chandler, AZ and embroidered with the sentiment “Born to Love-Trained to Serve-Loyal Always”. Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. is a 501c(3) charity located in East Taunton, MA whose mission is to provide bullet and stab protective vests and other assistance to dogs of law enforcement and related agencies throughout the United States. The non-profit was established in 2009 to assist law enforcement agencies with this potentially lifesaving body armor for their four-legged K9 officers. Since its inception, Vested Interest in K9s, Inc. provided over 2,800 protective vests in 50 states, through private and corporate donations, at a cost of over 2.4 million dollars. The program is open to dogs actively employed in the U.S. with law enforcement or related agencies who are certified and at least 20 months of age. New K9 graduates, as well as K9s with expired vests, are eligible to participate. The donation to provide one protective vest for a law enforcement K9 is $950.00. Each vest has a value between $1,744 – $2,283, and a five-year warranty and an average weight of 4-5 lbs. There are an estimated 30,000 law enforcement K9s throughout the United States.
