The Indiana School for the Deaf Campus Police Department became a State certified Police Department in 1976. Since the start of the Campus Police Department, all of the officers have had to attend the Indiana Law Enforcement Academy. The Academy is 16 weeks long and is the same academy that the Indiana State Police and all police officers attend. ISD's Campus Police provide safety and police services to the Indiana School for the Deaf community 24 hours a day 7 days a week. Campus Police provide security for all of the 21 buildings, 80 Acres, 340 plus students, and 250 plus employees on campus.
The Indiana School for the Deaf strives to be the premier comprehensive center providing education, services and resources for Deaf and Hard of Hearing children, their families, and educational partners.
