UNIVERSITY OF ILLINOIS (WCIA) — Students will be back on campus in a few short weeks, and UI Police are looking for help.
Since the 1980s, they’ve employed student patrol officers, both undergrad and graduate students, as long as you’re taking nine credits.
The coordinator says it helps police be in several places at once. This semester, they’re looking for 7 or 8 student officers.
They help students walk home using Safe Walk. This year, a new app is being unveiled to make it easier.
