Non-Emergency Consultation

What Do I Do If I Have Concerns or Questions?

As in any potentially dangerous situation, please call ISU Police by dialing 911 from a campus phone, or 515-294-4428 to reach ISU Police Dispatch from a non-campus phone. (Dialing 911 from a cell phone will route you to Ames Police, which will then route you to ISU Police.)

Other helpful resources, particularly for non-emergency situations and general questions and information include:

For general information about services and safety issues, please feel free to contact the ISU Police (294-4428) or the Dean of Students Office (294-1020). In addition to this information, both ISU Police and the Student counseling Service (294-5056) provide outreach and consultation to faculty and staff, helping them identify signs that an individual may be at risk and how to manage those situations. ISU Police also provide education and outreach to the ISU community when providing an initial response to persons who may suffer from mental health problems and/or may pose a harm to themselves and others.
