Police & Public Safety

The Office of Campus Police is responsible for safety and security at Northwest and can be contacted at anytime, 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling extension 3314.

Students and visitors may obtain parking maps and parking decals, direct questions regarding parking tickets, obtain general or emergency assistance, and file accident reports. If an automobile without a decal must be driven on campus for a short period of time a temporary decal may be purchased at the Campus Police Office. The decal costs $1 and is valid for five school days.

In addition, our email address campuspolice@northwestms.edu  is available for faculty, staff, and students to confidentially submit information.
