Community Relations Unit

The Community Relations Unit (CRU) helps build and strengthen relationships between members of the UChicago community and the UCPD through education, intervention, and policing initiatives. The CRU works to identify and analyze crime hazards in our community and come up with strategies to help minimize them. The unit also provides members of the University community with a variety of services, including safety presentations, community outreach initiatives, and bicycle and laptop registration.

To schedule a time to register your bikes or laptops, or to schedule a safety presentation by a member of the CRU for your group, department, or organization, call 773.702.6008 or email
