The University of California Police Department is charged with the important task of safeguarding the University's students, faculty, and staff. UCPD and its officers must be able to effectively engage with the diverse and ever-changing campus community. We are commited to consistently engaging in open and responsive dialogue with our community, focusing on principles of community policing, and providing education on topics of crime prevention and safety awareness. Our efforts are directed toward creating an environment where research, education, and public service flourish.
