Police Services - Emergency Management

Community Service Officers

Our CSO team assists the community in a variety of ways.  They serve by conducting patrol checks to ensure buildings are secure to prevent unlawful entry into locked areas.  CSOs carry a radio to communicate with the UCMPD dispatchers about any situations of concern.  Examples include students in distress, medical aids, suspicious circumstances, suspects attempting to steal bicycles, etc. Sworn police officers respond to their location to assist with the problem.  CSOs also provide safety escorts, check blue lights for maintenance, pick up lost & found, livescan applicants for employment, and assist the police department with administrative tasks.  We count on them to serve as liasions between the department and community in several capacities.  They wear high visibility yellow polo shirts, so please say hello to them when you are on campus!
