Safety Escort Program
The Alcorn State University
Police Department is committed to ensuring a safe environment for all students,
employees and visitors at the university.
In an effort to encourage personal safety, the campus escort service
program was initiated. It provides
personal safety escorts twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week.
This service is designed to
provide escorts around the university campus, normally within two blocks of the
campus. Special request will be honored
on case by case basis. Any escort beyond
the campus area must be approved by the Chief or the shift supervisor.
You will need to be able to get
in and out of a vehicle on your own power.
We are unable to provide escorts
for wheelchair-bound individuals. If
someone is unable to get in and out of the vehicle, we can refer you
elsewhere. Please understand that space
is limited and equipment cannot be transported in our vehicles.
This program, staffed by our
patrol officers, serves the entire Alcorn University community. Calls for an escort are dispatched
immediately; however, if you experience a delay in response time, it may be due
to high volume of calls for service.
This program utilizes foot, cart,
and vehicle patrol officers. On campus
escorts may be accomplished by means other than a vehicle.
This program is designed to
provide a service to all students, employees, visitors, and customers of the
university. Please take advantage of
To access the program, call
601-877-3000 and provide the following information to the dispatcher:
- Your Name
- Current Location

We are happy to provide for your
safety. We can only do this successfully
if you help. This program has been
designed for your safety. Don’t put
yourself in a situation that can lead to a bad outcome. Our escort program helps you avoid becoming a
victim of crime.
Help us help you.
