In the Community
Working with the beta block residents and college and area police, we are establishing an online community watch using high definition streaming video. Residents can monitor the neighborhood from the safety and security of their own homes.
In the Home
We are interested in studying how the gigabit fiber-to-the-home network can support individuals with cognitive disabilities live safer and more independently in their own homes.
The UCPD works closely with the Cleveland Police Department, Case Western Reserve University Police Department, University Hospitals of Cleveland's Protective Services Department, and other University Circle institutional security forces to keep University Circle safe. In addition to its 25 officers, which include plainclothes detectives, the UCPD is headed by Police Chief John Pavelich and supported by a staff of 4 full-time and 3 part-time civilian employees. With full law enforcement authority granted by state law, the UCPD follows procedures mutually agreed upon with the Cleveland Police Department.
The operations of the UCPD are supported by full radio communication as well as by LEADS (Law Enforcement Automated Data system), which provides instant access to a statewide data bank of crime information including vehicle registration, stolen property files, and wanted or missing persons. Through linkage with the National Criminal Information Center, such information is also available on a national basis.
The UCPD is a national model for community policing for UCI's 40 member institutions that each pay a voluntary assessment for this service.
