Filming at UICPD
Since it’s completion in 1899, the police station located at 943 W. Maxwell St. has been the real-life home to the Chicago Police Department (7th District) from 1899-1998 and the UIC Police Department from 2000-present.
However, most of us are more familiar with the building from its appearance on the small screen where it’s been the fictitious home of the Chicago Police Department since the 1980s.
The UIC Police Department was featured in an article in UIC Today that explores how the building has been featured.
