Safety Escort Service

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 requests 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 this service.

To access the program, call 601-877-3000 and provide the following information to the dispatcher:

  • Your Name
  • Current Location
  • Baggage (if any)
  • Destination
  • Physical description of yourself

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.
