Rockford Response to Criminal Activity
Since the Parkview site does not have its own police force, the Rockford Police Department provides periodic patrols at the Parkview site and responds to both non-emergency (815-987-5700) and emergency (911) calls. Rockford police units will be immediately dispatched to the location of all in-progress criminal activities. Police reports will be generated for all criminal activity on campus. Follow-up investigations of reported criminal activity are assigned on a case-by-case evaluation.
The Parkview site contracts guard services for a portion of non-business hours. The guard service provides on-site observation services to protect and monitor buildings and equipment from potential damage and act as a deterrent to unsafe conditions for building occupants. When the guard service is not present during nonbusiness hours, access to the building is limited to those employees that have been issued an access card for the main entrance door. This door is connected to a computer-controlled door access system which grants entry into the building and logs all users who attempt to enter the building. The Parkview site (excluding the Activity Center) has a fire alarm system, providing continuous monitoring, that is connected directly to the Rockford Fire Department Central Station. If a fire alarm is sounded, all fire doors within the buildings close automatically and the Rockford Fire Department dispatches equipment and personnel. All students, faculty, and staff have been issued an i-Card for identification that is to be worn any time they are within university buildings. All students, faculty, and staff who enter the Parkview site during non business hours are required to sign in and out at the guard kiosk located in the lobby vestibule.
