    This story states that the University of Illinois at Chicago relies on Chicago Police for campus security. This is not correct.

    The UIC Police Department is a sworn force of officers with arrest powers throughout the state. The department works closely with Chicago Police and other municipal departments, as well as federal, state, county and other public safety agencies.

    The department, which has a long history of community-based policing, is fully accredited by the Commission for the Accreditation of Law Enforcement Agencies, a national credentialing authority for municipal, county and state agencies. It was the first university department in Illinois to earn this accreditation, in 2012.
