Blue Light and Yellow Call Box Phones

In an effort to maintain a safer campus, the College maintains Blue Light and Yellow Box courtesy phones. These phones are strategically located throughout the campus. The phones connect directly to CPS by pressing the "call" button. Please use these phones to report suspicious circumstances, request courtesy rides/escorts, jump starts, or simply to contact CPS directly.

Courtesy Rides

CPS provides 24/7 courtesy rides or walking escorts for campus community members.
Contact CPS either at 503-883-SAFE (7233) or via a Blue Light phone or a Yellow call box located outside most residence halls.

Identification Cards

Linfield College identification cards are available at Cozine Hall in the CPS Office. Your first Linfield ID card is provided free of charge. The replacement cost for a lost card is $20. Broken or damaged cards should be replaced. The first broken/damaged card replacement is free. CPS office business hours are Monday through Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
For the safety of the community, please report lost or stolen cards to CPS immediately at 503-883-SAFE (7233).

Lost and Found

CPS maintains lost and found items for all of campus. If you lose or misplace an item, file a report in the CPS office. If your item is turned in we will return it to you. Unclaimed found items with an estimated current value less than $100 will be held for 90 days; items with an estimated current value more than $100 will be held for the duration of the academic year.

Key Services

For the occasional accidental lock outs, if you are unable to locate a Residence Life staff member, please contact CPS for assistance.

 Vehicle Assistance

When a vehicle is unable to start due to a dead battery while on Linfield Campus, CPS has the ability to provide a complimentary jumpstart. CPS Officers may also be able to provide access to cars with keys locked inside. If the headlights are left on, if the vehicle needs to be moved, or an incident occurs involving a vehicle, CPS will contact the vehicle owner. Parking permits are the best way for College Public Safety to contact vehicle owners.
