To all those who’ve put country before self to serve, we thank you!

Future Flyers: Join us this morning starting at 9:00 am in Student Recreation and Fitness Center for Campus Visit Day. (We’ll be next to our friends from Lewis University Residence Life.)

Our first snow is coming. Slow down, increase following distance and put down the mobile devices.

Along with our partners from the Office of Community Standards and ILETSB Executive Institute we’re attending threat assessment instructor training to help teach the community to assist us in keeping campus safe.

Officer Tom Burgess shares the lessons he learned from our brother Jun Kikuchi.

Today we bid a final farewell to our friend and co-worker, campus safety officer Jun Kikuchi. Rest easy, brother. We’ll take it from here.

Services for Campus Safety Officer Jun Kikuchi are as follows: Visitation: Saturday, November 3, 2018 from 10:00 am to 11:30 am in the Sancta Alberta Chapel at Lewis University, One University Parkway, Romeoville, IL 60446.

The Department of Homeland Security put together this useful 11 minute video to help us understand the pathway to violence.

This morning we lost a cherished member of the LUPD team. Campus Safety Officer Jun Kikuchi served the Lewis University community for 32 years in various public safety roles. Since his arrival in the United States from Japan as an international student, Lewis has been Jun’s home. He worked as a student security officer, emergency medical technician, and security shift supervisor in the old security department. When the University transitioned to a police department, Jun stuck with us on that journey and became a campus safety officer. He loved his adopted country as much as his campus community, serving as a member of the Illinois Army National Guard. His service to our community spanned generations as Jun welcomed the sons and daughters of students he served earlier in his career. His encyclopedic knowledge of the campus in intricate detail made him an invaluable resource. His ability to spin tales of Lewis folklore were a regular source of entertainment to his co-workers, even if some of his ghost stories included some imaginative embellishment. A new officer’s field training experience was not complete without the Jun Kikuchi midnight ghost tour of campus. Jun’s unique personality and charm are simply irreplaceable. Our campus won’t be the same without him. We are keeping his family in our thoughts and prayers. As information regarding services becomes available we will post it.

We’re back at the Will County Health Departmet today presenting ALICE training to their management team.

This afternoon Sajid Malik was formally sworn in as a police officer by LU President Dr. David J. Livingston. Sajid has spent most of his adulthood at Lewis: first as a student, then an employee. His only time away was during several years of distinguished service in the US Army. After completing the Suburban Law Enforcment Academy in September, he’s been involved in field training where he’ll be paired with one of our certified Field Training Officers for the next several weeks. Congratulations Officer Malik!

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the friends and family of Deputy Jackson.

Prayers for a speedy recovery for a wounded Will County Sheriff's Office deputy:

If you commute on Weber Rd. over I-55, here’s some good information on the construction project:

Much of what we do involves community outreach and proactive policing, but we still need to be prepared to protect our communities. We put in a lot of hours this summer on the range with our training partners, the Naperville Park District Police Department.

We had a busy September. Click the link to see what we were up to...

Gaile Towner, a telecommunicator for the Naperville Police Department, retired after a 40 year career in public safety. In her career she’s dispatched LUPD Chief Jim to calls when he was a rookie Naperville officer, she trained DC Mike during his PSAP “sit-along” as new Naperville cop and has been the voice on the other end of the radio for Officer Claire when she worked as a Naperville Park District Officer. That’s three generations of LUPD cops who started their careers relying on Gail’s voice to be safe!
