Message from the Chief

Welcome to the Benedictine University Police Website.

We are a full-service police agency devoted to excellence in service in support of the advancement of knowledge and student-career and life success. Our primary goal is to ensure a safe and secure educational and working environment for students, faculty, staff and visitors. Our organizational values are reflected in our mission statement and are carried out by all our department members.

Our officers and support personnel are a dedicated, well-trained group of enthusiastic professionals who take pride in their service to Benedictine University. We value our relationship with the students, faculty, staff, visitors, and neighbors, and we believe that community partnerships are key to ensuring that we maintain a safe learning environment for all.

As the University's law enforcement agency, our officers wear distinctive uniforms and patrol in marked vehicles. We expect our officers to be proactive in dealing with on-campus investigations and all of us are a part of the department's community-based policing program. This program is designed to partner with our community in both crime prevention and investigations. Our officers regularly meet with students and staff to identify needs or concerns. University Police officers are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
