    Worked there many, many moons ago, when it was called Public Safety. They are Police under the private university act. Don't know if they allow their people to carry O/D, back when they couldn't. But back then the guys on Evenston campus were Evanston Special Police (they only ones that were in Evanston) and the Chicago Campus were Chicago Special Police. Ones on the Evanston Campus do more "Police type duties" than on Chicago campus, which is pretty quiet.

      Had a friend who worked/works(?) for them about 4 years ago. We haven't been in touch in years. He liked it, kept busy, especially when the "$hitheads" came back to school in the fall.

      I believe he started doing UC work last time we spoke so I don't know if he had transferred...

                Hate to dig up an old thread, but just wanted to hear any comments on this place. I've received some negative feedback from some PO's, but didn't want that to stop me from applying...

                  First PD I tested with and it was in 2007 as well if not late 06. I'm still waiting for the call they promised me in two weeks. I made it to oral interviews and never heard from them again! From what I hear, their stance is let Evanston take care of as much of their policing as possible so Northwestern problems are actually disguised as Evanston issues, not university concerns. Private schools often want police just in case they need an immediate response but short of that, they'd rather kick the crime over to the municipality instead of take it as their own. Wouldn't want to scare away prospective students.

                    Saw a few of their community service officers become police officers there. Not sure if thats how they recruit and send their own to the academy. They prefer certified from their posting.
