CSUF Police Department
Through many hours of reflection, conversation, and introspection, we’ve developed a Listening & Sharing Tour to address concerns members of our community may have with law enforcement on or around campus. We’ve utilized the Presidential Task Force on 21st Century Policing recommendations as one of our guiding frameworks.
The presentation includes three essential tenets of enhanced community engagement:
Training and Values, Empowerment, and Outreach.
Each tenet addresses what we, as an organization, have done to bridge the divide between our agency and those we serve, and what we intend to do moving forward to foster equity, engage in active listening, open conversation, and to facilitate change.
We strongly encourage all CSUF community members/groups to take part in the presentation at your leisure. If you would like to request the presentation and engage in open conversation with members of our department, please complete our Presentation Request Form .
The presentation and respectful dialogue will last approximately one hour. A minimum of two participants are required and all completed presentations are subject to a post-presentation survey.
Dedicated to ensuring the university community's right to a
crime-free environment through exemplary and professional service.
CSUF Police Department Authority
California State University police officers have complete police authority to apprehend and arrest anyone involved in illegal acts on campus and areas adjacent to campus. CSUF police officers are sworn law enforcement officers under California Penal Code Section 830.2, and in compliance with state statutes, meet the peace officer standards and training requirements mandatory for all California law enforcement officers. In addition, California State University police officers undergo training specially designed to meet the needs of a contemporary university community. All officers receive training in tolerance and diversity to better serve their community.
CSUF Police Department has a written agreement with the Fullerton and Irvine police departments, which defines and details operational authority pursuant to the Kristin Smart Campus Safety Act of 1998, Education Code SB 1729. This agreement designates which law enforcement agency has operational responsibility for the investigation of violent crimes (Part 1 crimes) and defines the specific geographical boundaries of each agency's operational responsibility. The bill further requires that these agreements be made available to the public and that copies of these agreements be transmitted to the Legislative Analyst.
