An external review of Illinois State University Police Department (ISUPD) is available.

Conducted in the spring of 2021, the review by Margolis Healy and Associates consisted of an assessment of the University Police Department’s operations and approach in addition to a series of key stakeholder interviews with students, faculty, and staff. The report includes 67 recommendations that cover a number of areas, including transparency and accountability, staffing, training, policies, and partnerships.

The assessment was prompted by recommendations from student activists who expressed their concerns regarding policing practices on campus specific to African American students.

The report is available here: Margolis Healy University Police Department report
