Campus Security includes a supervisor, three full-time employees, and five part-time employees. The supervisor reports to the VP of Enrollment Management. Campus Security staff are not sworn or commissioned law enforcement officers. They do not carry weapons. With the exception of the supervisor, all on-duty personnel wear a distinctive security uniform. They provide basic security services to the campus community and are on duty during selective hours during the day. Members of the Campus Security staff attend training programs specifically designed for security personnel.

Campus Security works closely with the Fort Dodge Police Department and other local authorities. Campus Security provides walking and vehicle patrols, responds to criminal and non-criminal incidents. Campus Security offers an evening safety escort service to anyone who requests it, to anywhere on campus. Security officers make routine patrols of the campus, including lounge areas, and checks of the residence halls.

Campus Security makes, keeps, and maintains a daily log written in a form that is easily understood and records all crimes reported to the office. The log is available to the public for inspection in the VP of Enrollment Managements Office.
