Police and Security Services

 

Special Events

All event security is to be coordinated through the University Police and Safety Office.

The North Dakota State University Police and Safety Office offers a variety of services for special security needs. NDSU Police Officers are licensed by the State of North Dakota as Peace Officers. Departments and organizations may hire NDSU Police Officers and/or Contracted Security to work events such as dances, parties, seminars/lectures, sporting events, etc. Departments and organizations requesting NDSU Police officers or Security will be billed for the service. 

In order to ensure the safety of personnel and event attendees, the University Police and Safety Office reserves the right to determine whether Police or Security are assigned to work an event. For the same reason, the University Police and Safety Office also reserves the right to make the ultimate determination on the number of personnel assigned to the event. Only NDSU Police Officers and Security contracted through this office may work events on or at North Dakota State University where a police or security presence is required or desired, except, if necessary, the University Police and Safety office may consider adding licensed Police Officers from neighboring jurisdictions to the event.

Police Personnel

Police officer and supervisor services cost a flat rate of $58.00/hour.  For example, if you request two officers to work for three hours, you will be charged for six hours of police services. Each officer or supervisor needs to be hired for a minimum of two (2) hours per event. Be prepared to provide a Fund/Dept ID/Program number or billing address along with the departmental accountant contact information upon request of the service.

Please contact the NDSU Police at least three weeks prior to your event. Arrangements can be made with Lt. Adam Walter at 701-231-9933.

Contracted Security Personnel

All security guard services are to be coordinated through the University Police and Safety Office.

The University Police and Safety Office contract with a local security company to provide an unarmed uniformed security presence to protect equipment, displays, and facilities. The contracted security can provide access control, and request compliance with University policies. Security services are available for temporary assignments or special events. Security guards provide an extra set of eyes and ears for NDSU Police personnel. They wear uniforms, and carry radios to communicate with the NDSU Police Communication Call Center. Specific job duties and expectations of security guards are determined on a case by case basis and are mutually agreed upon between the requesting party and University Police.

Security guard services cost a flat rate of $20.00/hour. For example, if you request two security guards for four hours, you will be charged for eight hours of security guard services. Security guards need to be hired for a minimum of four (4) hours per event. Be prepared to provide a Fund/Dept ID/Program number or billing address along with the departmental accountant contact information upon request of the service.

Please contact the NDSU Police at least three weeks prior to your event. Arrangements can be made with Lt. Adam Walter at 701-231-9933.
