Educational Programming

We offer educational programs for the University community to reduce the likelihood of crime on and off campus. 

If you are interested in having a representative from University Police speak to your group, contact Gloria Graham, Deputy Chief of Police at 847-467-5376 with your request. These are just some of the programs University Police offers to the Northwestern community. Other programs can be developed that match your needs.
