The Public Safety Department provides a safety escort program for students, employees, and guests whose circumstances require them to travel alone on campus and to and from campus, in isolated areas after dark, during times of low activity on campus or whenever there is concern for one's own personal safety.
The Safety Escort program is intended to supplement our Husky Shuttle service.
Hours of Operation:
The service operates seven nights a week from dusk to dawn. Escorts generally are not provided during the daytime hours without the permission of the on-duty supervisor or department administrator.
How to Request a Safety Escort:
Because of the various patrol functions required of the officers, there may sometimes be a short waiting period. Waiting times may vary depending on the number of calls and the locations of the escorts.

Please note the following:
At no time will a Public Safety Officer transport a sick or injured party but will refer this person to the local Emergency Medical Service. If a person should become ill while utilizing the escort service the dispatcher will notify the Stearns County Dispatch Center.
If a person calls requesting a riding escort, and is unable to move by their own power (i.e. wheel chair, etc.) we will refer the call to the MetroBus Dial-A-Ride Service. The Public Safety vehicles are not equipped to provide this type of service.
