About Internal Affairs
Complaints involving UICPD Personnel
The primary duty of the Internal Affairs Unit is to ensure that allegations against department members are thoroughly investigated. Internal affairs investigations are designed to protect the public, the department, and employees; to provide the basis for correcting improper employee behavior; and to ensure the continued high standards of the University of Illinois at Chicago Police Department.
The Internal Affairs Unit also provides department leadership with information concerning trends and conditions that might negatively affect the integrity of the department or harm the public’s trust in the department.
Commending UICPD Personnel
UICPD welcomes positive input from the public concerning department personnel. Employee commendations from the public help us assess individual employee performance and lets us know when we are doing things that meet the public’s expectations.
Members of the public can commend an individual employee or group of employees in-person, by phone, or through written acknowledgement. All commendations and positive comments will be shared with department leadership, and may be shared with the employee and the rest of the department though an internal email.
Please visit the links on the left to learn more about how members of the public and the UIC community may recognize or initiate a complaint about the conduct of a department member.
