This Side of the Law

On any college or university campus, it’s important to stay safe. Oakton is no exception: our sworn Public Safety officers take their jobs very seriously and are committed to promoting personal safety and a peaceful environment. You can find them throughout the Des Plaines and Skokie campuses providing a number of services, including:

  • patrolling both campuses
  • overseeing traffic and parking concerns
  • working closely with local police districts
  • educating us on various campus safety
  • assisting stranded motorists
  • accompanying faculty, staff or students to their cars after dark
  • investigating criminal complaints
  • providing emergency services

If you’re ever in need of assistance, please don’t hesitant to ask one of the Public Safety officers or cadets. They’re here to help!
