Community Police Academy

Registration for the fall 2023 Community Police Academy is now closed. 

The Community Police Academy is a six-week course which provides CSUF students, staff, and faculty the opportunity to learn from subject matter experts and gain valuable insight into the field of law enforcement.

The academy will help expand participants knowledge of the duties and responsibilities of a law enforcement officer and address any common misconceptions regarding split second decisions made during critical situations and common processes in day-to-day police operations.

Through the Community Police Academy, we strive to increase public safety, build trust, engage in perspective-taking, and develop a partnership between our diverse CSUF community.

Each week, class will be open approximately 10 minutes prior to the start time.

Weekly attendance is required. Limited spots available. If you're unable to attend all six weeks, continue to follow us on social media or check our website for the next academy.

Community Police Academy Participants must be at least 18 years old. Open to current CSUF students, staff and faculty only.

We are honored to partner with you to support a safe, inclusive, and welcoming campus for all Titans to thrive.

If you have questions or concerns, contact upd.pio@fullerton.edu prior to completing the form.

The academy is not intended as training for those that seek to enter law enforcement. It is geared towards those looking for insight into day-to-day operations.

Diaper Drive

We’re partnering with HomeAid Orange County for the Essentials Diaper Drive. HomeAid Orange County plays a leading or partner role in helping to fight homelessness by donating time, resources, or money.
 
During this month-long period, you can drop unopened and unused diapers and wipes off in the receptacle at our main station (800 N. State College Blvd., Fullerton, CA 92831) which is located at the corner of Gymnasium Dr. & State College Blvd. and the CSUF Children’s Center. If you’re unable to personally deliver the items, you can ship the donations directly to the police station at:

Oftentimes, struggling families have to choose between buying diapers or buying food. Your generous donation will ensure no family has to make that choice. Diapers of all sizes are welcome.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI)

Although for many years we’ve had a robust community engagement and training program, it’s important to look ahead, listen to concerns with an impartial lens, and adapt. Cal State Fullerton Police Department is committed to policing from the center, which means we’re part of the community and not isolated from it. We recognize the vital importance of public trust and cooperation in order for us to take the necessary steps forward.  

You deserve a police department, our department, that looks at community outreach and policing through the lens of diversity, equity, and inclusion and one that vows to implement many of the recommendations outlined in The President’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. 

There is much work to be done! We thank you for your patience as we reimage our role in the community, your role in our policing efforts, and what we can do and be if we work hand-in-hand.

Emergency Preparedness, Education and Training


Preparedness is important for disasters of any size and any location. In your home, your car, classroom or when you travel, being prepared should be a basic element of it. Learn how to make all aspects of your life safe and ready for anything. 

Are You Ready?

Force Options Simulator

The simulator is an interactive tool used to educate and train law enforcement officers regarding real-world scenarios so they’re better prepared for difficult and quickly evolving calls for service.  
 
Each year, the simulator is made available for a limited time to current CSUF students, staff, and faculty to improve community relations and understanding. During the training, a CSUF police officer will answer questions, explain the “why” behind particular approaches to a call, and ensure the safety and well-being of the participants. 
 
Notice: The simulator may be triggering to some individuals as training weapons will be used on simulated and projected human targets. If you are unsure if this event is right for you, please contact upd.pio@fullerton.edu before registering. 
 
Registration Information: Registration is a two-step process. Please enter the applicable information in the Smartsheet form. Upon completion and submission, you’ll receive an email with the link to the scheduling calendar. Your appointment time is not confirmed until you receive the calendar confirmation email from Calendly. Please do not bring anyone with you to the training as they will not be admitted.
