Criminal Activity Off Campus
When a Saint Xavier University student is involved in an off-campus offense, University police and security officers may assist with the investigation in cooperation with local, state, or federal law enforcement. Chicago, Evergreen Park, Oak Lawn, and the Orland Park Police Departments routinely work and communicate with campus officers on any serious incidents occurring on-campus or in the immediate neighborhood and business areas surrounding campus. University police and security officers can and do respond to student-related incidents that occur in close proximity to campus. However, University police officers do not provide “primary” law enforcement services to off-campus resident students or locations. This remains the responsibility of the municipality having jurisdiction and Illinois Uniformed Crime Reporting (IUCR) responsibility.
