The mission of the department is to protect life and property on campus. The University Police Department is a duly authorized law enforcement agency. All University Police officers are fully trained California state peace officers with law enforcement authority throughout the state of California.
The University Police Department operates 24 hours per day, 7 days per week, and can be reached by dialing on-campus extension 911 or (909) 537-5165 for non-emergency requests.
The Department of Public Safety in partnership with the Women’s Resource Center, holds 15 hour physical training courses for women on escape and evasion from physical attack. The course includes a simulation phase where students put training into practice against protective suited aggressors.
This program is designed to create a whistle defense zone around the university and whistles are used for crime alerting. Participants agree to use the whistle only in the event of a police emergency and to call the police if a whistle is heard.
University police provides an escort service on a first-come, first-served basis to anyone requesting the service on campus. This service is available at any time.
University police can provide crime prevention training upon request in almost any areas of crime prevention, including rape prevention training.
Cal State San Bernardino has implemented the Connect-ED® service to allow university administration and the University Police Department the ability to reach all students and staff with time-sensitive information during unforeseen events or emergencies using voice, e-mail and text messaging.
During critical situations, CSUSB officials can use the system to broadcast pertinent information and provide details on appropriate response. There is no charge to subscribe to the service, but call and text messaging fees from cellular phone service providers could apply.
