Message from our Chief

On behalf of the dedicated men and women of the University Police Department, welcome to California State University Fullerton. We are proud to provide the highest quality of services to our Titan family community.

Police Chief Dennis DemaioThe professionalism of this Department has been recognized by the National Accreditation from the Commission on Accreditation for Law Enforcement Agencies (CALEA). This award was earned for demonstrating a commitment to meet or exceed an extensive set of law enforcement standards. The University Police Department was initially accredited by CALEA in 2001 and was reaccredited in 2004, 2007 and 2010. In 2008, we were also accredited by the International Association of Campus Law Enforcement Administrators (IACALEA). These accomplish-ments qualified our agency to be assessed under the Gold Standard Assessment Model, CALEA's highest award. By October 2013, University Police had successfully completed the process and became the first higher education institution police department in California to achieve the CALEA Accreditation with Excellence Award.

The University Police Department strives to maintain and promote a campus environment conducive to academic achievement. We strongly believe in community policing, working with our community partners and problem solving to enhance public safety and improve the quality of life for everyone who works, studies or visits this wonderful campus.

The University Police website offers a wide range of information necessary to assist you in making intelligent, informed decisions. Please use us as a resource and, in turn, become partners with us to prevent crime on our campus.

The policy and statistical information is made available to you in compliance with the Jeanne Clery Disclosure of Campus Policy and Campus Crime Statistics Act, formerly the Student Right to Know Act of 1990. If you have any questions, please contact our office.
