On behalf of the Campus Police Department, we are happy to welcome you to Purdue University North Central. It is our goal to do everything to create an environment where people can feel safe to learn, visit and work.
We believe that one way to help create such an environment is to fully inform the campus community about issues, campus policies regarding safety and security, and the services your Campus Police Department provides. As a result, we are happy to present our Web site, and we hope you find it both helpful and informative. So welcome…and if we can assist you, please call us at a number listed below.
