Our Mission

The Northwestern University Police Department, as a functional unit of the Department of Safety & Security, serves a vibrant and diverse university community of about 31,000 faculty, staff, and students, as well as thousands of daily visitors on the Evanston and Chicago campuses--around the clock, every day of the year. We are committed to a collaborative and transparent approach to campus safety that engenders the highest level of respectful engagement and equitable services to all, so learning and research can continue to thrive at Northwestern.
