Law enforcement agencies also have come to depend on the center for university-level research programs, technical assistance and conferences on crucial and timely issues.

The Northwestern University Center for Public Safety has taught almost 250,000 professionals in law enforcement in related fields from all
50 states and 38 foreign countries.
