Campus Safety & Security Department
Each day the Campus Safety & Security Department ensures a safe, secure, and orderly Law School environment by protecting individuals and property, preventing crime, and preserving peace. Campus Safety & Security officers patrol campus using community policing practices, conduct professional and ethical investigations, and provide effective emergency and crisis response. The Campus Safety & Security Department strives to make the Law School experience safe and rewarding by providing secure access control and monitoring the John Marshall Campus.
The Law School campus community is encouraged to promptly and accurately report all crimes. Any individual who witnesses a crime or suspects that a crime has been committed should report the matter to the Law School Campus Safety & Security Department by dialing ext. 501 from any on campus house phone or dialing (312) 427-2737 ext. 501 from any cellphone. Campus Safety & Security officers, while enforcing UIC John Marshall Law School’s regulations, are authorized to ask any person for identification to determine whether individuals have lawful business at the Law School and can initiate a citizen’s arrest when reasonable grounds, other than a City of Chicago ordinance violation, has occurred. Criminal incidents that occur on campus will be handled by the UIC Police Department.
We ask that all building occupants be alert to their surroundings and carry the UIC John Marshall Law School-issued i-Card at all times while on campus, while using it strictly for personal use.
As required by law, the Law School Campus Safety & Security Department maintains a security incident log of all reported safety and security violations that occur on its properties. This log available upon request to all students, faculty, and staff with a 24-hour notice. All incidents reported to the Law School Safety & Security Department are investigated with the goal of fast results. Campus crime statistics are published on an annual basis.
