New UCPD Data, Information Now Online

As part of the University of Chicago’s commitment to enhancing the transparency of its policing activities, the University of Chicago Police Department (UCPD) is now posting new data and information on its website.

The UCPD has begun capturing field interviews and traffic stop information, and along with the daily crime/fire log and other similar statistical data, is posting this information in a new Data & Information section of the Department of Safety & Security’s website.

Additionally, information about the police department’s hiring and training practices, its jurisdiction and where it’s derived from, frequently asked questions of the department, and more details about the police department’s engagement with the community, has been added to the enhanced website as well. Information relating to UCPD’s arrest records will be available soon.
