The Roosevelt University Campus Safety Department is an unarmed, proprietary security force of 29 full and part-time uniformed officers, 1 operations supervisor and a director of campus safety.  Roosevelt University Campus Safety personnel do not have law enforcement authority.  Roosevelt University Campus Safety officers do not have arrest powers.

Roosevelt University relies on our local law enforcement agencies – the Chicago Police Department for the Chicago Campus and the Schaumburg Police Department for the Schaumburg Campus – for any law enforcement response and assistance. Campus Safety offices are located in AUD 113 on the Chicago campus and SCH 102 on the Schaumburg campus. Campus crime documentation is available at each location.

Roosevelt University has verbal agreements of understanding with both agencies regarding law enforcement assistance.  Campus Safety Administration works closely with these agencies to develop and promote good working relationships.  Roosevelt University does not maintain an MOU with Chicago or Schaumburg Police Departments pertaining to the investigation of criminal incidents.

Students and staff are strongly encouraged to accurately and promptly report any and all crime to the local law enforcement agency as well as Campus Safety.
