IV.Governmental Police Agency Procedures
  • A.When an incident requiring police action occurs on the property of any governmental law enforcement agency, the concerned agency will be notified by the assigned Department member so that agency personnel may assist in handling an incident reported directly to the Department by a victim or witness. The other governmental law enforcement agency may:
    • 1.request assistance of Department members to record the incident, conduct the preliminary and follow-up investigations, and make or assist in the arrest and/or detention of the offender.
    • 2.complete all necessary police activity (i.e., reports, investigative and arrest activity) and not request assistance from the Department.
  • B.Department members will be responsible for conducting the investigations of all reported crimes and effecting arrests without prior authorization of the federal agency whenever an incident requiring police action occurs on any of the following federally owned properties located in the City of Chicago:
    U.S. Federal Building
    230 S. Dearborn St.
    U.S. Post Office
    211 S. Clark St.
    U.S. Customshouse
    610 S. Canal St.
    NOTE:
    The relinquishing of exclusive jurisdiction for these properties by the United States Government to a mode of concurrent jurisdiction has resulted in the transfer, to the state and local law enforcement agencies, of the authority to investigate criminal offenses, make arrests, and administratively process cases through state courts. This jurisdictional change does not prohibit federal law enforcement agencies from also exercising their specific authorities as prescribed by federal law in these facilities. Only these three buildings are affected; concurrent jurisdiction does not apply to any other federal property.
  • C.Department detention facility personnel will accept arrestees from other governmental law enforcement agencies consistent with the procedures established in the Department directives entitled "Processing Persons Under Department Control," "Bond Procedures," and "Court Call Schedule" after the Chicago Police Department Arrest Report has been completed and signed or attested to by the other agency's officer.
  • D.The district station supervisor of the unit of detention will:
    • 1.indicate initial approval of probable cause on the Arrest Report at the onset of the booking process indicating there is probable cause to detain the arrestee and the elements of the offense have been included in the narrative portion of the Arrest Report.
    • 2.approve proper charges placed against arrestees when the booking process is complete and probable cause exists. Normally, an arrestee who has been fingerprinted will not be charged until IUU review of the Criminal History Sheet is complete. However, the arrestee will be considered charged when the station supervisor in charge of a detention facility waives the results of the fingerprint check, as outlined in the Department directive entitled "Releasing Arrestees Without Charging and Waiving Fingerprint Results."
    • 3.ensure a copy of the other agency case report (or equivalent document), original and duplicate copies of the signed complaint(s) are given to the receiving Department detention facility member, and traffic citations, if any, as outlined in Department directive "Arrest Report and Related Document."
      NOTE:
      The copy of the agency case report will be attached to the court papers for transmittal to the appropriate court.
V.Nongovernmental Police Agencies
  • A.Verbatim text of pertinent statute (Railroads):
    Railroads are authorized to maintain their own police or security force whose members shall exercise like police powers as those conferred upon the police of cities when engaged in the protection of railroad property and the protection of the persons and property of railroad passengers and employees (610 ILCS 80/2).
  • B.Verbatim text of pertinent statute (Private College and University):
    The Board of Trustees of a private college or private university, may appoint persons to be members of a campus police department. The Board shall assign duties, including the enforcement of college or university regulations, and prescribe the oath of office. With respect to any such campus police department established for police protection, the members of such campus police department shall be persons who have successfully completed the Minimum Standards Basic Law Enforcement Training Course offered at a police training school established under the Illinois Police Training Act, as such Act may be now or hereafter amended. All members of such campus police departments must also successfully complete the Firearms Training for Peace Officers established under the Peace Officer and Probation Officer Firearm Training Act. Members of the campus police department shall have the powers of municipal peace officers and county sheriffs, including the power to make arrests under the circumstances prescribed in Section 107-2 of the Code of Criminal Procedure of 1963, as amended, for violations of state statutes or municipal or county ordinances, including the ability to regulate and control traffic on the public way contiguous to the college or university property, for the protection of students, employees, visitors and their property, and the property branches, and interests of the college or university, in the county where the college or university is located.
