The Safety Escort Program is a free service provided to all students, faculty and community members during the evening and early morning hours. The objective is to provide safety, based on the "buddy" system, which is to simply provide another person to travel with you to your destination.

Safety Escorts are available for anyone, male or female, and is encouraged if you are walking alone.

A Safety Escort can be requested by simply calling the CARS Line at 618.664.7777 (from a campus phone dial 7777).

Once an escort is requested, you will be asked your name, location, a room number if applicable, and your specific destination. Security officer or student workers will then respond and walk with you.

The Safety Escort Program is only one of the many services that Campus Safety provides, but it might possibly be the most important.
