About the Northwestern University Police Department 

According to the Northwestern University Police Department, “The University Police Department has the primary responsibility for crime prevention, law enforcement, parking control, emergency response and policing of special events. University Police are also responsible for various other community services on the Evanston and Chicago campuses. University Police provide a full range of campus services 24 hours a day, 365 days ayear. Sworn University Police personnel have the same authority as municipal police officers / county sheriffs, are authorized to carry firearms and are empowered to make arrest.


University Police investigate reported criminal incidents and conduct follow-up investigations. As appropriate, criminal charges are filed and/or referrals to Student Affairs are initiated.  University Police act as a resource for the University community providing a variety of services including offering community safety and security programs.


University Police maintain close working relationships with the Evanston Police and Chicago Police Departments, including jointly investigating major incidents. Through the use of a Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) system, officer activity is recorded for statistical analysis purposes. Calls for service are documented and evaluated to provide enhanced community service.


The Evanston and Chicago campus University Police Department (which includes the Parking Services Division in Evanston) is made up of 60 members. Most Police Officers and Supervisors have a Bachelor's degree and some have advanced degrees. On the Chicago campus, contract security personnel man stationary posts and make rounds in various campus buildings and University owned parking garages. Contract security personnel supplement University Police resources providing assistance and acting as additional "eyes and ears" on campus.”
