UCPD Officers are duly sworn peace officers with statewide authority as defined in California Penal Code Section 830.2 (b). Each campus police organization also employs civilian staff and students/interns who perform specialized public safety support functions. The services and challenges of the ten campus police departments are as varied as the campuses they serve. By designing public safety strategies and programs tailored to the individual campus community, each campus police agency provides the best combination of resources and services to meet its unique needs with the collaboration and support of the broader ten-campus police network.
The primary responsibility of every one of our members is to assist the University in establishing a safe and peaceful environment in order that the University’s mission of education, research, and public service can take place in an open and welcoming environment. We also recognize that all members of the campus community share in the responsibility of maintaining our safe environment.
