Keeping our community safe.

Going off to college prompts a lot of questions. Maybe you're asking "Will I be safe?" ranks JBU as the #2 safest college campus in Arkansas. And our beautiful town of Siloam Springs is the #6 safest city in Arkansas. 

Experienced, trained officers

JBU Campus Safety Officers (CSOs) are trained, armed public safety officers that patrol campus 24/7 year-round to assist students, faculty, staff and visitors with safety and security matters. With over 100 years of combined law enforcement and military experience, our CSOs are here to serve our campus community.

Authority Areas

Campus Safety monitors and secures campus buildings, and enforces JBU parking and traffic violations. CSOs also assist the Siloam Springs Police Department, which has full authority on campus to make traffic stops, conduct arrests, criminal investigations and intervention. (All crimes of violence, alcohol and/or drug use will be referred to SSPD.)

Campus Training

Campus Safety conducts annual meetings at orientation to inform students and employees about security procedures and practices so they can help be responsible for their safety and security. CSOs also teach self-defense for women and seminars on rape awareness. Tornado drills and active shooter awareness drills are conducted each year.

Lost and Found

Students can review lost and found items via Eaglenet Marketplace. In addition, campus visitors who think they may have lost something on campus can email
