The Office of Public Safety’s goal is to maintain a safe and secure environment while providing the best customer service possible for students, employees of the College, alumni, friends, and visitors to the campus.
Creating and maintaining a safe environment requires input and effort from all members of the Carthage community. The Carthage Public Safety team adheres to the community policing model of developing relationships with our community partners. In the spirit of partnership, we ask our community members to practice public awareness, prevention techniques, and report suspicious activity.
The Carthage community also benefits from a strong partnership with the City of Kenosha Police Department, Kenosha County Sheriff Department, and the Kenosha and Somers Fire Departments. Our partners provide emergency response, training resources, and community collaboration.
The Office of Public Safety operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Please see Our Services & Campus Safety page for a more inclusive look at the services we provide.
