This is a report that John Castrale, Indiana's DNR non game bird biologist, submitted to the Indiana Audubon Society in February 2014. The Peregrine section begins on page 2. South Bend is on page 11.
Below is the South Bend portion of the report.

"17. City-County Building/Tower Building, South Bend, St. Joseph County – Following releases of young peregrines in 1993, a nest box was placed on the southeast side of the Tower Building (formerly called the Standard Federal Building), just below the roof where the releases took place. Falcons were reported in most years after the releases. A pair first nested in 2003 and has been successful each year through 2013. In late 2007, the nest box was moved south to the roof of the adjacent City-County building, due to the desire of the building manager. The pair quickly adopted this box. A camera was placed in this box prior to the 2010 nesting season. The same pair has nested each year at this site, except for 2013 when an unbanded male replaced Zephyr who suffered a fatal collision with a light pole the third week of June 2012. In 2011, it was noted that Zephyr was missing his right foot, but he was able to survive over a year with this handicap. The female was captured and banded during the first year she nested."

The link is for the entire report:
