The mission of Campus Safety and Security Services is to faithfully serve and protect the Trinity community with care and compassion in collaboration with Facility Services and Student Affairs to promote individual responsibility and respect so that the goal of Christ centered academic excellence can be obtained.
Campus Safety and Security Services provides security 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to the University community in an official uniformed capacity, while our Security personnel are not sworn officers; our campus is regularly patrolled by The Deerfield Police Department.
Trinity International University publishes a Crime Statistics page and keeps a Daily Fire and Crime Log. Both reports are publicly accessible. These reports are also available to be viewed in person during normal business hours at the Facility Services building.

Trinity International University uses RAVE, a university-wide text/voice messaging alert service that will notify students, faculty and staff if an emergency situation occurs on campus. The alerts provide real-time information as a text/voice message to your cell phone in the event of an emergency. The campus alert service will be used in the event of an Emergency Notification, Timely Warning or when any other important information needs to be relayed to the Trinity community.
As needed, Timely Warnings are issued by our campus security office to inform our campus community of unfortunate events that may have taken place and how individuals can best protect themselves from harm.
All vehicles must check in with security or have a current TIU parking permit. Temporary or visitor passes can be obtained at the Gate House located by the Route 22 entrance. Permits can be applied for online and picked up weekdays between the hours of 8:30 am and 4:30 pm. By operating a vehicle on University property you fall subject to all State and TIU motor vehicle regulations.
