The University of Illinois – Chicago is conveniently located near many of Chicago’s biggest attractions, but just as the city itself, UIC experiences the safety and security concerns inherent in most large cities. UIC Police, in compliance with the Department of Education, provides our (prospective) students, staff, and community with information detailing the types of crimes and incidents that occur on and around campus. This information is meant to allow everyone to have a more transparent look at what is happening behind the scenes on campus.
UIC Police hopes, that in providing this information, everyone can stay informed and become more conscious of their safety and surroundings.
The Clery Act requires that UIC publish an annual report containing crime and fire statistics for the prior three calendar years; identify mandatory crime reporters, namely Campus Security Authorities, for the prompt reporting of crimes; issue timely warnings and emergency notifications when incidents pose an imminent or ongoing threat to the health, safety, or welfare of all or part of the university community; maintain a daily crime and fire log; among other mandates.
