Community Relations Unit

The Community Relations Unit (CRU) is comprised of seven police officers and one sergeant who through education, intervention, and policing initiatives, help build and strengthen relationships between members of the University of Chicago community and the UCPD.

The members of CRU also work to identify and analyze crime hazards in our community and come up with strategies to help minimize them.

To learn more about the CRU or to schedule a safety presentation for your group, department, or organization, call 773.702.6008 or email
