Loyola University Chicago’s Department of Campus Safety understands that it is more important than ever to maintain and strengthen relationships to increase trust across our community. Following feedback from members of the Black Cultural Center (BCC) and other student organization leaders, Campus Safety launched Integrity Cards in Fall 2020.
Campus Safety now carries Integrity Cards that may be requested by any student, faculty, or staff member when an officer concludes an interaction. The purpose of this process and card is to further ensure that key information is readily accessible for follow-up. When the officer concludes an interaction and a card is requested, the Campus Safety staff member will write down their name, star number (if the employee is a police officer), and the computer-assigned number associated with the assignment on an Integrity Card so that Loyolans know who exactly they spoke with. The department will also know when the event took place. This ensures that any member of the community has the necessary information they would need to discuss the event further.
Below is a visual representation of the Integrity Cards.
Campus Safety's departmental policy has always required all sworn police officers to have their names visible on their uniforms. Names are either embroidered on their black body armor vest carriers or displayed on a name badge affixed to their outer garment.
