Community Safety Program

Community Safety Officers (CSOs) work in conjunction with the UC Police, UC Fire and the administration of university residential communities (both on- and off-campus) to ensure a safe and secure living environment for all residents.

CSOs are trained in emergency response, first aid, CPR, and disaster response, and they carry radios linked to University Police Dispatch. Teamwork is a highly valued skill in our program and our CSOs work in teams to provide consistent service across campus and in all residential communities.

Safety and Security Services
CSOs offer a wide variety of services to the residential communities including:

CSOs are visible in the communities at night from 7pm to 3am and can be approached for assistance or you can call (831) 459-2100.

Disaster Response (PDF)
All CSOs are trained in disaster response and search and rescue. Should a disaster occur during the hours of 7pm and 3am, the CSOs will assist with your evacuation and your local response. Please follow their directions in emergencies.
