And the beat goes on
On October 15 a motorcade and 500 balloons kicked off an expansion into the Woodlawn neighborhood of University Police patrols, which had begun touring Woodlawn's streets at 12:01 that morning.

In partnership with the Chicago Police Department, the University Police force has extended its beat from 61st to 64th Street in an area bounded by Stony Island Avenue to the east and Evans Avenue to the west ("Chicago Journal," August/01). The northern boundary remains at 47th Street.

The expansion keeps pace with U of C faculty, students, and staff relocating south of the Midway and supports Woodlawn's revitalization efforts by increasing its security. Within four hours of beginning the new patrols, University Police made its first arrest, charging a man with theft. The department has since made a handful of other arrests in the neighborhood.

"The expansion has proceeded as planned-even better than expected," says University Police Department Executive Director Rudolph Nimocks. "Responses from residents have been both enthusiastic and supportive. We've had calls to our communications room from people just saying thanks for coming to Woodlawn."
