Our Services

The NWC Campus Security Office is located in the Yellowstone Building. We provide a variety of services to students including:

Safety Escort Service.

For a safe escort to an on-campus destination at night, call or text 307-202-0605.

Firearms Storage

Want to bring a firearm or other weapon with you for recreational activities? Just check it in with us when you arrive on campus. We’ll make sure it’s securely stored and available to you when you want it. This practice keeps you in compliance with campus policy and also keeps your property safe.

Free Car Unlock

If you register your vehicle in advance with the Campus Security Office, we’ll attempt to unlock it free of charge.

Lost and Found

The Campus Security Office maintains a campus-wide lost and found and will even help you track down missing items, if possible.
