Crime/Campus Alert




The ISU Public Safety Department has received reports of a possible scam involving unsolicited scholarship or “grant” money being readily available to students.


It is believed that once a student responds to the email, a request is made for personal information through text messaging.


Please be aware that these types of solicitations are most common at the beginning of a fall semester and university students are targeted.  This occurs at nearly all colleges and universities.


You are urged not to share any personal or financial information to anyone under these conditions.


If you have been a victim of this type of incident, please contact the ISU Police Department at 812-237-5555 or at

Bike Patrol

The ISU Bike Patrol was started in by funds provided by a LCC (Local Coordinating Council) Grant. The Patrol started with 3 officers and bikes.

The Bike Patrol now consists of 12 Officers who have over 32 hours of training through the International Police Mountain Bike Association (IPMBA). The ISU Bike Patrol does have a certified IPMA instructor and does conduct one training session a year for area bike officers.

The Bike Officers can usually respond to calls for assistance faster than motor units due to the geography of campus. The Bike Patrol is currently operating on Cannondale full suspension mountain bikes.
