The Department of Public Safety in conjunction with Web Communications has developed a web app to assist students, faculty and staff with the opportunity to walk to various locations on campus with an escort. The new SIU Safe Walk app is available online at When a walk is requested, a confirmation email will be sent from the DPS dispatcher on duty. Saluki Patrol officers will meet the person requesting the walk at the designated start location and time.

Safe Walk services are available 24/7
