Recent Crimes in the Champaign-Urbana Community


The University of Illinois Police is working aggressively with the Champaign Police Department to address the recent criminal activity in the campus district and will work to keep the community informed about our efforts.


Members of the campus community are strongly encouraged to follow these safety tips to decrease their potential for becoming a victim:

-Stay alert - call the police immediately to report suspicious activity and/or if this subject is observed.

-Trust your instincts - if it does not feel right, call for help.

-Avoid walking alone at night. Travel in groups when possible and always walk in well-lit, heavily traveled areas.

-Turn down your electronic devices. Excessive volume or use of electronic devices (iPods, PDAs, cell phones, etc.) can distract you from potential safety hazards.

-If you choose to consume alcohol, please drink moderately - remember your ability to respond is diminished by over-consumption of alcohol.


Welcome to the University of Illinois Division of Public Safety Web site.

It is our privilege to serve the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign community of approximately 53,000 people including: undergraduate students, graduate and professional students, faculty members, academic professionals and staff members, as well as our visitors.
