Chief Raymund Aguirre

 

Meet our Chief

Ray Aguirre started his career in law enforcement in 1997 with the Palo Alto Police Department. He gained experience through the years and became a police chief for two community college police departments before having the privilege of leading the CSUF University Police Department in March, 2018. 

Chief Aguirre is cognizant of the important role public safety plays on a university campus. He recognizes educational law enforcement's task is to develop healthy relationships with the community, thereby solidifying a partnership of respect and trust. 

Aguirre plans to expand the Community Policing initiative by hosting additional outreach programs such as Coffee With A Cop, Orange County's GRIP and supporting Special Olympics. He will introduce new programs such as Game Changer and Coffee With The Chief, which are geared towards making the police department more accessible and transparent with the community they serve.
