UCSB Police Department

Whether you are a current or prospective student, visitor, or a member of the faculty or staff, it is my pleasure to welcome you to the University of California, Santa Barbara. As Chief of Police, I maintain an open-door policy and encourage you to provide me with feedback and suggestions. Both me and my Department work hard to build community partnerships that serve to make this rich and unique campus a safe place  to live, learn, and work. The public safety professionals working here have certifications and training that are readily recognized as the best our nation has to offer. We remain committed to providing a wide variety of services and outreach programs designed to educate, enhance, and develop personal and community awareness around security and safety issues.
