Public Safety


imageWe are committed to maintaining a safe and secure learning environment, here to promote positive community relations, and on campus 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

Welcome to the Lake Forest College Department of Public Safety web page. We hope you will find the information contained herein useful.

Developing and maintaining a safe and secure environment is a joint effort that we trust you will join us in. We are quite fortunate to be located in one of the most beautiful suburbs on Chicago’s North Shore and have developed an excellent partnership with the Lake Forest Police and Fire Departments. We ask every member of our community to learn and demonstrate good personal security habits, exercise effective crime prevention techniques, remain vigilant in your personal safety, and immediately report crimes or suspicious activity.

We invite your comments, questions, concerns, and suggestions regarding our department and public safety here at the Lake Forest College.
