Harper College offers a variety of services and resources to promote a safe campus environment, including the Harper Campus Police Department. Students are encouraged to take responsibility for their own safety and to report concerns to the HCPD.
Another resource for both parents and students to be aware of is the Harper Early Alert Team (HEAT), which investigates reports of possible threats or concerns and guides the campus in intervening before an individual resorts to violence. (Note: HEAT is not for immediate or emergency response. Harper College Police should be contacted in an immediate or dangerous situation).
