CSU Channel Islands police officers are commissioned, sworn peace officers with full enforcement authority throughout the state. Officers are responsible for reporting and investigating crimes and traffic accidents, responding to medical emergencies, enforcing laws and local ordinances, and all other incidents requiring police assistance. Criminal cases are forwarded to the Ventura County District Attorney's Office for prosecution. Police officers provide 24-hour patrol of the campus and surrounding neighborhood on foot, in vehicles, and on bicycles. Most police officers are also certified emergency medical technicians (EMT-1) and are the first responders to all medical emergencies.

The on-campus Safety Escort Service is available 24 hours a day 7 days a week. During the academic year, the Community Services Officers are available to provide on-campus Safety Escorts Monday-Friday from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

More programs available include:

  • Rape Aggression Defense (RAD)
  • Sexual Assault Awareness and Prevention
  • Alcohol/Drug Awareness/Anti-Drunk Driving Workshops

Department personnel work closely with other departments on campus such as Housing & Residential Education, Student Health Services, and Personal Counseling Services in a collaborative approach to educating the campus community on such issues as alcohol and drug abuse, drinking and driving, sexual assault, domestic violence, and cyber safety.
