I would like to welcome you and thank you for taking the time to visit the Joliet Junior College Police Department's (JJCPD) webpage. This webpage is part of our continuing commitment to the safety of our students, staff and visitors. We hope that you will find it to be a useful and informative resource not only about the department, but also for a wide range of topics that relate to safety both on and off campus. The officers and staff of JJCPD take their oath and obligation to protect and serve the members of the JJC community seriously.

Our motto "Service – Pride – Respect" means that we take pride in providing professional, high quality service while enforcing laws and policies in a respectful manner. 

We recognize that we cannot fulfill our mission of making JJC a safe learning environment without your assistance. We need you, the members of the JJC community, to be our eyes and ears, to report incidents of a criminal or suspicious nature, and to keep us informed . Together, we can accomplish our mission.
