  • As an academic community of approximately 5000 students plus a faculty and staff population of just over 500, Morton College understands that security issues are extremely important to  parents, students, faculty, staff and visitors. 

    Morton College is located in a residential neighborhood on the south side of Cicero, IL, an urban community where crime statistics are low; however, being aware of the potential for criminal activity provides us with the opportunity to be proactive in our approach to the safety and security of our campus.

    Campus Safety Authority

    The Morton College Campus Safety staff provides for the safety and security of our students, staff, faculty and visitors. Campus Safety Department procedures are coordinated by the Campus Director and Chief of Police.

    The department is comprised of armed full-time and part-time police officers who have the same arrest, detention and police authority as other Illinois police officers and have the authority to enforce Morton College regulations. 

    Campus Safety Officers are highly visible around campus and conduct foot and vehicle patrols of the campus 24 hours a day when school is in session.

    The Campus Police Department is located in the first floor, ground level of the C building in room 119C.

    Morton College Campus Safety works closely with the Cicero, Berwyn and Stickney Police Departments as well as state and federal authorities. Additionally, Morton College Police maintains a written mutual aid agreement with all municipal agencies.

    Crime Prevention Programs

    The Morton College Police Department offers a variety of programs and information to help the campus community deal with public safety issues.

    For more information or to request a presentation on any safety or security related topic, please contact Chief Leonard Rutka at (708) 656-8000 Ext. 2203 or e-mail at leonard.rutka@morton.edu
